Discover This School

SF International is a small school that offers a unique program designed for recent immigrant students who have attended school in the United States for four years or less. SF International teachers are specially trained to offer extra support to help every student develop their academic English skills while they learn the content they need to graduate and be prepared for college.
Each grade level has only 100 students. Our team structure promotes personalization, growth, and success for our students. It also allows every student to be known well and supported to succeed. Learning goes beyond the walls of our school through community participation. All subjects teach English development through meaningful projects that keep students motivated and connected to their learning.
Students will participate in career internships and will have the opportunity to attend college classes during their senior year. Seniors will have opportunities for internships and community service in different settings, from businesses to government offices to community organizations. SF International is the best choice to help ensure your student has a successful and rewarding high school experience.
