Drew School’s focus is on developing the whole student, and cultivating each individual student’s potential. The opportunities for self-discovery through academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular involvement at Drew are nearly limitless. All students are encouraged to follow their passions beyond the classroom through unique programs like annual DEALL (Drew Education for Active Lifelong Learning) Days, Friday Electives, and the 3-week Senior Project.
Drew students are active, life-long learners who are engaged with the world around them. They come from all parts of the Bay Area (25% from outside of San Francisco) and from over 60 middle schools. 38% of our 250 students are self identified students of color and over 40% receive some financial aid. Our students have diverse interests and talents that range from the fine arts and athletics to Chemistry, Economics and World languages. The one thing they all have in common is their love for, and pride in, their school and their community. Click here to 'meet' some Drew students.
Our students pursue a rigorous core college preparatory curriculum and are offered integrative, hands-on, and experiential learning opportunities to connect what happens in the classroom with the world beyond our doors. Drew recognizes that it is not enough to prepare a student for college – they must also be prepared for life, through citizenship, self-knowledge and independent decision-making. Drew gives its students an education for life.
