Welcome to Urban
Dear Rising 8th Graders and Families:
We are delighted that you are considering The Urban School of San Francisco in your high school search. Urban is an exceptional place for students seeking to ignite a passion for learning and to immerse themselves in meaningful engagement with the world outside the classroom.
The process of applying to high schools is involved and can seem overwhelming at times, so it’s important to take it one step at a time! The summer before your eighth grade year is a great time to reflect and get a broad perspective before diving into all the many details you will encounter in the fall.
This summer, we encourage you to begin familiarizing yourself with the websites of the various schools in which you are interested and getting a general sense of how the process will work. Our process begins in August. At that time, you will be able to complete an online inquiry. Starting in early September, you will be able to begin scheduling opportunities to come visit Urban. We will be hosting Open Houses and student visits, as well as optional interviews and parent information sessions starting in October, and we hope that you choose to take advantage of these opportunities to get to know Urban.
If you wish to inquire about the upcoming 2015-16 school year, please note that enrollment is now full and we are no longer accepting applications.
To inquire about Urban for 2016-17 and receive more information on our process and application details, please return to this Admissions section of our website in August. We hope you have a wonderful summer, and we look forward to guiding you and your family through this exciting process in the fall!
