    Our Strategic Design

    Connect.Invent.Design charts a bold strategic direction for the next era of San Francisco University High School (UHS).

    We believe this work positions UHS to be a national leader in shifting school culture, affirming our fundamental commitment to intellectual challenge and vitality while simultaneously responding to the demands and opportunities of today.

    Connect

    Invent

    Building a bridge involves innovative, integrative thinking that Is responsive to community needs and values. We want to equip our students to think this way, in service of the greater good.

    Design

    We want individual students to engage in building a future with a sense of deep purpose at their core, being thoughtful about what really matters to them and the impact they hope to create in the world.
