When & Where
GWHS Alumni Association
We Are Eagles For LIFE!
Founded in 1952, the GWHS Alumni Association's primary mission is to maintain Washington High's status as San Francisco's leading comprehensive public high school with financial assistance of its academic, athletic and extracurricular excellence by engaging support from alumni and community.
Thanks to contributions from generous alumni, the Alumni Endowment and departmental endowments enable us to bestow grants for classroom supplies and student activities unobtainable due to budget limitations. The Association also bestows over 20 senior awards and nine Principal's Cup awards in honor of former Principals, all with cash grants.
We provide news about alumni, the school, reunions and related events to over 5,800 alumni members through our newsletter, emails and social media. We also accept artifact and ephemera donations for our historic archives that we someday hope to display in a permanent location.
We can continue to advance our mission only with the ongoing support of our alumni members! Visit our website and click the "Join-Donate-Buy" link to become a member and/or contribute, or contact us for info. We hope to see you at an Alumni event soon!
