Requesting Recommendation Letters

For SFUSD...You only need a letter of recommendation to apply to School of the Arts. 

You do not need a letter of recommendation to apply to any other SFUSD high schools. Lowell does not accept them.

 

Please do not ask for a recommendation letter if you do not need one or do not fully commit to applying to SOTA. Every year, teachers, counselors and principals complete hundreds of letters! 

 

Allow for 2-3 weeks in advance for completing any type of recommendation letters. Please respect your recommender's time.

Tour, Open House, & Shadowing… what's the difference?

You are excused from school for high school tours, open houses, and/or shadowing.

Make sure to bring a signed note (by parent or guardian) the day before or when you return to school so that we may excuse your absence. You are responsible for work that you miss so talk to your teachers before your shadow date.

 

Tour: Usually during school hours led by students. A walk through campus with possible visits to classrooms.

Open House: Usually after school hours in a contained area (library, auditorium, gym, etc.) with general information presented and often a question and answer portion.

Shadowing:  Attend high school for part of the day following a real life high school student!
