Mission High School information
San Francisco’s most spectacular bell tower is the churrigueresque tiled tower of Mission High, built in the mission revival style from 1925 to 1927. This is one place where you might actually want to see a high-school musical – the theater has a glorious gold-leafed dome with deco chandeliers. The multiculti student body here is mostly African American and Latino, and its famous alumni include Maya Angelou and Carlos Santana.
