Though the environment is very competitive, you have a lot of support available. You are sorted into an advisory group with 11 other classmates, two Peer Advisors who are two grades above you, and a faculty mentor. They will be with you until you graduate (aside from the PA's). Our dean is very involved with the school community and invites students to play scrabble with her. The guidance counselor is always available, and you will definitely find a teacher you connect with very well and can also consult them.
Review San Francisco University High School
As a second semester senior looking back on it all, I'd have to say UHS was quite a roller-coaster for me. When I was in middle school I never really worked nor tried that hard and I somehow got into this school and when I went, I experienced a complete culture shock. To be completely honest, I didn't adjust fully to the social and academic aspect of UHS until junior year, which had a pretty big effect on my gpa. But despite the struggles I had as an underclassman and the struggles I endured with this college process, I think that I've gained a lot of knowledge from this school. It has really forced me to mature as a student and because of that, I feel like college won't be as bad. Of course it will be work, but I think UHS has prepared me pretty well with techniques and coping mechanisms to deal with the stress. For any prospective students who are reading this:

UHS is a very difficult school for everybody in their own way. In order for you to make the best of it, learn to accept failure sometimes and in the end you will experience a ton of success. This place pushed me to my limits, but instead of shying away from a highly academic college, it has made me want to attend a college just like it.
All teachers have deep content expertise in the subjects they teach, many have PHDs. They are also caring, approachable and genuinely interested in their student's learning.
