Our Mission

At Thurgood Marshall Academic High, students gain the skills they need to go on to lead healthy, productive, and choice-filled lives and graduate with a plan for how they will achieve their goals.

Our Vision

Thurgood Marshall Academic High School is a multiculturally and multilingually diverse community of scholars that focuses primarily on ensuring our students graduate with the skills necessary to identify and define their goals, plan for post-secondary success, and achieve in college and career.

At TMAHS, students and staff hold themselves and each other to high expectations. We utilize project-based learning to explore and create relevant, real-world experiences that challenge our students to think creatively and critically. We nurture safe, supportive, and joyful classrooms that are rooted in antiracism and rigor. Our students and staff feel a strong sense of self, of belonging, and of purpose and strive for excellence

TMAHS is a community school that authentically partners with students, families, and the larger San Francisco community. Our students are empowered to learn and grow through meaningful field trips, work-based learning, wrap around services, and out of school time programming.
