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.

If you have any questions or concerns about our school in the neighborhood, please contact Director of Communications, Jenn Soult at jenn.soult@sfuhs.org.

Thank you for your continued support.
