Union Square School

Situated upon the hills between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean, San Francisco is perhaps America's most beautiful city. Stunning views greet you at every turn, from the sparkling waters of the bay to the sun setting behind the Golden Gate Bridge. This city is full of unmissable attractions: a rollercoaster cable car ride over San Francisco's hills, a leisurely afternoon in Golden Gate Park, a stroll around Fisherman's Wharf or a boat trip to the island of Alcatraz.

Our School is located on the first and second floor of a historic building in the heart of San Francisco, near to the popular Union Square and the famous Gates of Chinatown. Surrounded by Academy of Art and Golden Gate University, our students will feel comfortable walking to class with American university students.
