    George Washington High School provides a learning environment that is safe and secure, promotes high academic and ethical standards, and prepares all students to become successful lifelong learners in a global, multicultural society. We believe that equity means not only providing equal access to school resources, but providing appropriate support so all students can take advantage of all resources. We encourage our students to explore every academic opportunity available.

    Our school mission is that every George Washington High School student will be a lifelong learner who can think critically with a social conscience, and strive to reach their full potential while maintaining mental and physical health. Students will grow to be resilient, productive, and contributing members of their communities. Our school wide learning outcomes are aligned with the SFUSD Vision 20205: Graduate Profile.
