Principal's Welcome

Dear George Washington High School Families and Community,

As the proud Principal of George Washington High School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great school year. We are excited to have students back on campus, filling our classrooms and hallways with their energy and enthusiasm for learning.

The mission of George Washington High School is to provide all students an environment in which they can excel academically and think creatively to prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century while developing and demonstrating good citizenship skills. Washington strives to be a safe community that promotes cultural sensitivity, engaged learning, ethical thinking and social responsibilities. As your Principal, I also understand that our mission cannot be achieved without the support and collaboration of our families and community.

High school is a critical and exciting time for a student and their family. We want our students to grow intellectually, creatively, culturally, physically and emotionally so they can achieve their maximum potential and be ready for whatever life path they choose. At Washington, we embrace the challenges of the future while we continue to cherish and celebrate the traditions of the past.

I am honored to serve as the Principal of George Washington High School. It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where families, students, faculty and staff care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please feel free to contact me at 415-750-8400 or at

I look forward to sharing your child's high school journey with you. Go Eagles!

Ms. Susan Saunders
