Principal's Welcome


On behalf of the faculty and staff at George Washington High School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year.  It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of welcome and introduction as the new Principal.


We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our students can achieve their highest potential.  We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our students need support from the home, community and school.  We know a strong partnership with you will enhance success for all students.  As partners, we share the responsibility for our students success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.  We ask that you guide and support your students’ learning by ensuring that s/he:


·        Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready to learn.

·        Completes all homework assignments given by teachers.

·        Reads daily.

·        Shares their school experiences with you.

·        Informs you if s/he needs additional support in any area or subject.


We are very proud of the 80 years of educational excellence at Washington.  We are equally proud of the wide variety of extracurricular and community service activities available to all students.

This is a very exciting yet critical time in your child’s life.  The teachers, counselors and administrative staff at Washington want to provide the necessary supports for your child to be successful and ready for college.


Malcom Forbes said “Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one”.  Everyday, I am inspired by the students at Washington and am honored to be their Principal.  If you have any questions, I can be reached at the school at (415) 750-8400 or by email at  


Go Eagles!

Ms. Susan Saunders
