Archbishop Riordan High School Reviews
Acceptance to the Engineering Program is competitive, based on a student's math and science grades, course rigor, and evidence of interest in engineering.
My son, a junior this coming year, has loved the Engineering Program. Those two classes have been his favorite each year. It's a good mix of hands-on work combined with some theory. This has been a great a experience, allowing him to test whether he'd be interested in computer science/engineering in college. Thus far, the answer is 'yes'.
I'm not aware of any other school in San Francisco or the Bay Area with a STEM offering of similar depth.
