Retreats

This year’s retreats gave our students the opportunity to participate in a variety of community building activities and academic preparation. The freshmen participated in a challenging ropes course at Fort Miley, developed Personal Learning Plans, and developed high school goals. The sophomore class went Alcatraz and learned about the Israel-Palestine conflict. The junior class visited UC Berkeley, the SF Chronicle Annex, and learned about immigration issues. The seniors prepared for college by working on their Senior Portfolio, Senior Exhibition, and personal statement. After retreat, students came to school on Monday fully transitioned from summer and ready for the school year! Check out some pictures from the mentioned activities on our Facebook page.

Volleyball Team

Try-outs are over and the girls’ volleyball team roster is up! We are extremely excited to have such a strong and passionate team. Volleyball and all Leadership High School sports games will be posted on our website’s calendar and game-day reminders will appear on Facebook.

Forms

All families MUST submit an emergency contact form and a free/reduced lunch application. The emergency form is vital to keeping your student safe and family informed in the event of an emergency. Your child’s safety and health is our top priority! If you have not submitted an emergency contact form, please ask your child to pick one up from the main office. The data gathered from free/reduced lunch application is the main way that Leadership receives funding from the San Francisco Unified School District and the state. We understand that not all families qualify, and that not all students want to eat school lunch. Due to the financial impact these applications have on our community, however, we ask every family to do their part by submitting an application. You can submit your free/reduced lunch application here, or pick up a paper application in our main office.

First ASM of the Year!

The first All School Meeting of the school year was a huge success! The energy and spirit of the school shined through every student and staff member in attendance. This meeting’s agenda gave opportunities for reflection and empowerment by honoring Michael Brown, multiple student performances, a fashion show, and a memorable music video starring Principal Ms. Silb many other amazing staff.

Donations

Leadership High School is a thriving community! Our supplies are not limitless, however, and we are grateful to accept donations such as basic school supplies, boxes of tissues, hand sanitizer, Clorox wipes, feminine products, and first aid items. Donations can be dropped off at the main office. Thank you!
