Welcome to Urban!

Dear 8th Graders and Families:

We are delighted that you are considering The Urban School of San Francisco in your high school search. As you begin your 8th grade year, the excitement of applying to high school can manifest itself in a variety of ways: anxiety, eagerness, happiness. However you experience the journey, we will be with you every step of the way to make sure your path is straightforward and enjoyable as we get to know each other over the next few months.

You can begin the application process by filing out our online inquiry and then scheduling opportunities to come visit Urban through our online admissions portal. It is important to note that all of our admissions events are optional. We host three Open Houses for prospective students and their parents/guardians, and we encourage every student to attend a shadow visit, during which you will observe two classes and tour our beautiful campus adjacent to Golden Gate Park. Following submission of the Parent/Guardian Form, you may also schedule an optional interview. Interviews are held on a different day from your shadow visit and run from November through mid-January.

Additionally, we invite all 8th grade parents/guardians to attend one of our optional Parent Information Sessions. During these sessions, you will have the opportunity to speak with an admissions representative, observe a school day in action and tour the campus with a current Urban parent. We also welcome prospective families to attend any of our athletic events, musical concerts or drama performances. 

For more information regarding our school calendar, application dates and process, please visit the Applying Step-by-Step to Urban page. If you have any questions about Urban or admissions, please feel free to contact our office at 415 593 9555 or at

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our Urban community. Ready to get started? Click here to submit an online inquiry. Have a great 8th grade year!
