Baden High School is the continuation high school that serves the South San Francisco Uified School District (SSFUSD). Baden High School has been fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Baden High School is designed to offer a viable alternative to the traditional high school setting. Students respond well to the small, personalized setting and individualized educational programs.

We subscribe to and implement the educational philosophy of the South San Francisco Unified School District. Additionally, we believe that Baden High School provides an alternative education program for those students whose learning styles, personalities, needs, and overall interests have not been met within the designed framework of traditional comprehensive high school.
