UHS' campus extends through two city blocks in the northern section of San Francisco. The majority of students come from the city, though some commute from East Bay cities, Marin County and the Peninsula. The college preparatory course of study combines a core of required courses with numerous electives aimed at meeting special needs and interests. Advanced Placement courses are available in the major disciplines. The arts program makes use of extensive facilities that include music practice rooms, a MIDI lab and digital recording studio, photography darkrooms, a ceramics studio, and facilities for digital imaging and film production. Among other elective subjects are classical literature, economics, contemporary world issues and computer programming. Community service is part of the curriculum at all grade levels. Each student belongs to an advising cluster consisting of peers from their grade and led by a faculty adviser. Students participate in semester and yearlong off-campus learning opportunities, including study in China, France, Italy or Spain through School Year Abroad. A rich program of independent study awards transcript credit for a variety of student-initiated projects. The physical education program provides a climbing wall and such activities as tae kwon do, flag football and tennis. Students may participate in independent study projects. UHS schedules frequent field trips to areas of interest.
