School Data

Discover this school

Independence High School, an independent study high school offering a full educational program to the students of San Francisco, is located in the outer Sunset district in San Francisco. Its diverse student body represents all areas of San Francisco and reflects the city's culturally diverse population. The school opened in 1980. All Independence High School students meet one-to-one with an assigned teacher/counselor for one instructional period (45 minutes) per week to review progress on assigned work and the new assignments for the week ahead. We encourage all students to spend additional time at school for elective classes, remedial classes, CAHSEE preparation, student activities, or just to study.
