About Us

Mission Statement

The mission of Harvey Milk High School (HMHS), a small transfer school, is to establish and promote a community of successful, independent learners by creating a safe educational environment for all young people. HMHS is designed for students in grades 9-12 who have not met success in at least one other high school prior to admission and who want to continue their education in an alternative, small school environment. The school strives to provide all students with a rigorous academic experience for college and career readiness that emphasizes critical thinking skills and student collaboration.  This nurturing educational setting at HMHS not only challenges and promotes academic success, but it also fosters and supports a diverse, self-respecting, confident community.
