Mission: Drew knows and believes in teenagers. We engage each student in a process of intellectual discovery to develop an individual voice, the confidence to express it, and the empathy to understand its impact.
Founded in 1908, Drew is a strong independent urban high school in San Francisco enrolling students in grades 9 through 12. Our school community is centered on experienced, dedicated, and passionate faculty, and engaged, committed students. Drew’s hallmark approach to education is progressive and student-centered. The school combines its academically-rigorous curriculum with a focus on experiential learning, global awareness, local community involvement, citizenship, and support of individual talents and strengths. With a recent rebranding, new mission statement and new head of school, Drew has become more confident and clear in expressing its long-held values and philosophy. Class sizes range from 10 to 18 students per section.
