san francisco university high school

Welcome, Neighbors

UHS has been a “resident” in the neighborhood since 1975. Before becoming University High School, our historic Julia Morgan building was built for Katherine Delmar Burke School in 1917. Over the years we’ve added to our footprint, with classrooms and offices now in five buildings extending from Jackson to California Street.

Our calendar of evening and weekend events features theatre performances, concerts, and gallery exhibitions that we hope you will consider attending.

When you register for our bi-annual email newsletter, we’ll send you two tickets that you can redeem at any one of our three annual student theater productions.

If you have any questions or concerns about our school in the neighborhood, please contact CFO/COO Jason Walthall at jason.walthall@sfuhs.org.

Thank you for your continued support.

Julia Russell Eells
