Shadow Program

About Our Shadow Program

Thank you for your interest in our shadow program. We understand that students have a choice about which high school they attend. We encourage you to give South San Francisco High School strong consideration. Our comprehensive high school experience offers students a unique opportunity to develop both personally and academically. SSFHS offers rigorous academic programs geared toward the completion of the UC/CSU A-G requirements, and a solid preparation for both college and career success. 

The Shadow Program offers 8th Grade students an opportunity to "shadow" current high school students to learn about SSFHS and experience a day in high school!

After you have completed the online Shadow Program Form, you will receive an email confirmation within a few days, stating that your student can participate in the Shadow Program.  Sometimes the message gets caught in your Spam filter, so please check.

Please do not send your student to SSFHS without a scheduled appointment or confirmation email. We want to be sure to offer your student the optimal experience and to plan accordingly.
