Welcome Class of 2021 - You are Our New Blues!

UPDATED MARCH 20: Urban School is aware of San Francisco Unified School District's delay in the mailing of high school placement decisions. We realize that SFUSD’s late notification may impact some of our applicant families whose deadline at Urban is Wednesday at noon. If your family is affected by SFUSD’s delay, please contact the Urban Admissions Department directly. We are committed to working with impacted families in finding a solution that works best for families and for Urban School.


We extend a very happy welcome to all our New Blue Urban students and their families! We look forward to joining with you in creating a memorable, challenging and successful high school experience for you and your family, and are excited to welcome you as new members of the Urban community. Over the next few months and until school begins on Monday, August 28, 2017, please consult this page for information and updates. Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please contact us at
