Independence High School offers an individualized learning structure and menu of support to create the conditions for students to become self-determined learners who find success in school, career and beyond. Independence High is an independent-study school offering a flexible schedule to students in grades 9-12. Students participate in one of three programs: One to One, Community or Cohort. Most students attend small project-based learning classes in the morning to meet academic requirements and they engage in Passion Projects (electives) and internships in the afternoon. There is a considerable amount of work outside of classes, so Independence students should be organized and motivated to succeed.
Independence students have access to concurrent enrollment at City College of San Francisco, where they can earn both high school and college credit. Foreign Language offering at Independence is Spanish. Art Electives include Ceramics, Drawing, Painting, Mural, Digital Media and more. Other electives or "Passion Projects" include Surfing, Woodshop, Yoga, Anime and Japanese Culture, Birdwatching, Interdisciplinary Studies and more.
