Welcome To The San Mateo Union High School District
Mission...a statement of system purpose and critical means
The mission of the San Mateo Union High School District is to challenge and motivate each student to achieve full potential as a responsible member of our diverse community, in a safe learning environment that promotes intellectual growth, health, creativity, and respect for self and others.
Beliefs...fundamental convictions and basic values
We believe that:
Board of Trustees Agree to 6-Month Property Search
The Board of Trustees has agreed to pursue the acquisition of property (or properties) to house certain key District functions. At the board meeting on March 7, the governing board reached consensus on a flexible six-month time schedule to find an alternative location for Peninsula High School; the central administrative office; maintenance and operations and the transportation (bus) facility. During the study session, at which no votes were taken, the board members were in agreement on moving the District Office and the bus yard; both are currently located on the campus of San Mateo High School. Most board members also concurred in directing the administration not to prioritize options for the future location of Peninsula at this time. Listed alternatives included moving Peninsula to a portion of the San Mateo High School site and renovating the present Peninsula facilities which are located at the former Crestmoor High School in the hills of western San Bruno. It was agreed that shifting Peninsula to the Hillsdale High School campus in San Mateo was off the table due to projections of increasing enrollment in the southern part of the District. District officials have been looking for ways to bring Peninsula to a more centralized location for several years. Most Peninsula students live in Burlingame, San Mateo and Foster City, far from the alternative school’s campus. All of the projects would be funded via bonds provided by Measure O, which was approved by District taxpayers in 2010.
