SFUSD Course Catalog

San Francisco Unified School District Course Catalog


The intent of this guide is to provide information regarding SFUSD high school graduation requirements, University of California entrance requirements, the list of courses offered to high school students in core disciplines, and the description of these courses. The guide has been developed to assist counselors, teachers, and students as they make choices in course selections to meet high school graduation and college entrance requirements.

The courses listed in this guide meet specific San Francisco Unified School District graduation requirements in the following disciplines: English, mathematics, science, history /social science, world languages, visual and performing arts, health education, physical education, driver education and electives. In addition to these courses, District high schools offer specialized courses, project-based activities, and field experiences to meet the special needs of students.

Course Selection

In selecting courses for each school year, students and families should review student transcripts and complete or revise the students’ four-year educational plan. Students must complete all SFUSD graduation requirements. In addition, they should select courses that support their college and career plans. The course descriptions contained in this catalog will help students and their families understand what each course offers and will assist them in making their final selections for registration. Not all courses are offered in every high school. Courses are usually offered at a site when there is enough student interest.

Please understand that Lowell High School does not offer each course that is listed in the catalog.  Each high school offers different courses and students can talk to their counselor about which courses are going to be offered in the upcoming semester.
