Founded initially in 1908 as a single-student "coaching school" by Bay Area educator John Sheehan Drew, the school moved to its present location at California St. and Broderick St. in 1911. It underwent a complete renovation in 2001, designed by Perkins + Will;[4] while also adding a 45,000-square-foot (4,200 m2) attached assembly wing known as the Cuddeback Wing, after Samuel Cuddeback III, who was head of school. The Cuddeback Wing was designed in 2011, and features a noted living wall designed by Patrick Blanc.[5]
