San Francisco Inernational High provides a safe, supportive environment that prepares immigrant youth for college and their careers. Every student is known well and supported to succeed. We are a small school with small classes. Our team structure allows for personalization, growth and success for our students. Our students are involved in internships, community service, and service learning within the larger community.

90% of Internationals students graduate and 90% of Internationals graduates go on to college.

One of the main differences in our program and what is available at other schools is that students are never tracked or separated by their level of English proficiency. All of our instruction is in English, but students are supported to continue the development of their literacy in their native language as well. We support students to use all of the strengths that they bring to their new community to help them develop their academic English skills and adapt to their new culture while preparing them academically to go on to college.

We know that there are many indicators of student success, so we use a variety of benchmarks to evaluate our work including: student portfolios, course pass rates, attendance rates, standardized test results, graduation rates, and college entrance rates. We also work very closely with families to ensure that they are involved in the educational process and empowered to be advocates for their students.
