June Jordan School for Equity (JJSE)
is a small high school located in the Excelsior neighborhood of San Francisco. The school is named after writer and activist June Jordan, whom Alice Walker called “the universal poet.”
JJSE strives to work alongside the communities of southeast San Francisco. We see ourselves as part of a social justice movement which includes offering a high-quality education to all youth in the city, not just those from certain neighborhoods or backgrounds. We are committed not only to prepare young people for college, but to also honor the traditions of their communities by teaching them to be our next leaders working for a more equitable world.
