I have 3 of my neighbors kids (more like niece and 2 nephews) that attended this school. One of them has graduated and now attends UC Berkley. The boys are 10th and 11th grade. One is on the jr varsity and the varsity football team. I believe that if it wasn't for the great football program that they have which requires the students to have a 2.0 gpa or above, the boys would of easily taken the wrong path. They get excellent grades and one is planning to be a math major.

George Washington is one of the best high schools in the bay area. It was when I was in high school too many years ago. They still have one of the best report cards in all the high schools in san francisco and they really exel in math. It is a huge campus they have one of the better sports programs in a city that is lacking of so many extra curriculum for our children.

To all who may read this message: I am a graduate of George Washington High School, class of 1965. I was a miserable failure at that time, although I did graduate. Since then, (almost 40 years later) I have become a successful middle school teacher, and also operate a successful business focusing on the information needs of k-12 education. I have about 100 schools in California who pay me for my advice, guidance, and data management services. I have graduated from four collegs and universities...In looking back, I think Washington was a great place to learn...i just wasn't ready...and I still hold the school in very high esteem. I always show my middle school students picures of Washington High, as well as copies of my crapy grades. So to those who were/are like me then...it's your effort that makes the difference...your time will come, if you are ready...I just wish I was ready earlier, but better late than never.
Hail Washington Hail...

Mu cousin attended George Washington High School and is always taking about how wonderful it is to attend school here. He always seems to have a lot of homework and is working on some kind of project or some event. we always go to the sports games too. I noticed that most students have a lot of school spirit. It looks like a wonderful environment for learning.

George Washington High School houses a huge campus, the radius of two blocks. Washington earns high marks for math, and also college preparatory courses. The football team is very good, along with the baseball team if your into sports. While, there is plenty of activities around school throughout the year, to keep your kids not only academically sound, but also sane from all the stress of going to school. The budget cuts have hurt a bit, but Washington continues its long tradition of excellence.

Contrary to what the previous poster had to say, George Washington High School is a wonderful school. It is mentally stimulating, and offers many AP and Honors classes. Maybe the poster did not take the appropriate classes. According to Newsweek only 15% of high school juniors and seniors across the country take AP exams. At Washington, 37% of juniors and seniors take AP exams. What does that say about Washington students? We work incredibly hard. Maybe that's why GWHS is always in the top 3 schools of San Francisco. Also, it doesn't hurt that it is the #455 on the list of the best high schools in America...only one other school in san francisco is on the list above 500 and it isn't Lowell or Lincoln.

PROS: safe neighborhood, many great programs available,
CONS:
