The Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts offers a highly creative alternative for students who seek in-depth study of the arts as part of their daily high school experience.

Students attend academic classes each morning on a rotating block schedule. In the afternoon, at least 2 to 3 hours daily are devoted to their art discipline, where they are taught and mentored by their Arts Directors and a corps of Artists-in-Residence from the broader arts community. In addition to fulfilling their academic responsibilities, students spend their time in rehearsals, studio time, outside lessons, training, showcases and performances.
With just over 650 students, Asawa SOTA is one of the smallest high schools in the district, and also one of the highest-achieving in standardized test scores and college admissions. The 4-Year Plan meets all University of California A through G requirements and an array of Honors and AP classes give students access to intellectually challenging coursework. The majority of SOTA graduates pursue higher education, most at traditional colleges and universities, and about ten percent at conservatories and art academies nationwide.

Asawa SOTA is a public high school located in Diamond Heights and shares a campus with the Academy of Arts and Sciences. Come and visit us at 555 Portola Drive at O'Shaughnessy, San Francisco CA 94131.
