Overview
  • About Mission High School

    Mission is located in front of the beautiful Dolores Park where the neighborhoods of the Mission, Noe Valley, and the Castro meet. The campus is accessible from all parts of the City with its central location. We instill positive social values, acceptance, and an appreciation for the diversity represented at Mission. Our academic focus school-wide is aimed at preparing ALL of our students for college and careers with rigorous courses including a rich array of AP and honors courses. We also have numerous business and college partnerships to assist us in making sure that our students set high goals throughout their high school years and upon graduation. Recent graduates now attend Stanford, UCLA, UCB, Cornell, Spelman, and many other universities throughout the country.

    Beginning in the Fall of the 2007/08 school year, the Mission faculty collectively created a working definition of Anti-Racist/Equity education: Anti-Racist/Equity Teaching promotes respect for diversity and creates a context within which students' experiences can be understood, appreciated, and connected to the curriculum. Our work around equity teaching has enabled us as an entire community to engage families, students, and staff, and have honest and powerful conversations around the meaning and practice of social justice and equity. Access and equity mean, for the Mission school team, that all students must have access to all services in order to create an equal playing field, and that we need to consider all facets of identity in order to create a safe, nurturing environment.

    The Mission Community defines high achievement and joyful learning as fostering a high dose of trust between student and teacher in order to support all of our students as they develop into deeply independent, curious, motivated young adults, with wide-ranging interests, well-prepared for all of the challenges and opportunities that await them in the post-high school world. Mission families agree that joyful learning is the key to ensure that students realize their full potential through relevance, engagement, and connection.

    We believe it is crucial that families have deep trust in the school to take care of each student, and we take this charge very seriously. This is the essential element in all that we do at Mission. As Mission is one of the most diverse schools in the San Francisco public school district, keeping our promise to our community includes addressing the diversity of our families, keeping parents informed on both an individual student basis and a school-wide basis, and offering a consistent model of a culture of caring for all members of the Mission community. We offer flexible scheduling for parent/teacher conferences, phone calls home for more than just discipline, and numerous avenues and opportunities for families to partner with Mission. There are many opportunities for families to deepen their connection with Mission in order to support both their own students and the community at large. We value the Mission connections as authentic, meaningful, and mindful of the diversity of our families.
