ACE Learning Center
San Francisco International High School is dedicated to helping support recently arrived immigrants academically, socially, and emotionally. The ACE Learning Center programs continue past work with both Acceleration and Span programs, plus a new flexible-schedule continuation education program for students across San Francisco whose work and family schedules make it difficult to attend school regularly.
Acceleration is an intervention and prevention program that provides access to rigorous college-prep curriculum by giving students the reading supports they need. The college retention program is Span. It helps recent graduates through their first year of college with advocacy, administrative and cultural challenges faced by newcomer immigrants. Through peer-to-peer, group and individual advice, Span promotes college retention and academic success. ACE supports Span Fellows and Span Scholars who mentor younger students.
The flexible-schedule continuing education high school is the only program in the San Francisco Unified School District that utilizes independent study, online learning, case management and small group advising to support English language learners who cannot attend high school during regular hours. Students who have to work or take care of family members now have an opportunity to earn a diploma.
