San Francisco public schools are getting $3 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The school district is getting $1 million for each of the next three years to expand programs designed to get students ready for college.
The money will also help those already at San Francisco City College.
Right now, only one quarter of students who start high school in the city go on to earn a college degree.
Four other cities received the grant.
