Investing in Students, Teachers and ProgramUrban was founded in 1966 with 22 students and seven teachers in rented space in the basement of a church on Divisadero Street. What was then only a dream in the minds of a small group of parents is today a successful, thriving community of more than 375 high school students and more than 80 teachers and staff members, thanks to the continued and generous support of our donors.
Today, gifts to Urban ensure our leadership in an innovative high school education, while igniting a passion for learning in our students, and inspiring them to become life-long learners through our unique and engaging curriculum, extraordinary teachers and outstanding program.
The resources and benefits available to our students and teachers today are the result of the vision and generosity of many Urban parents, alumni, alumni parents, grandparents and friends. Thank you for your interest in joining our community of supporters!
