Under Quick Links, along the left hand side of this page in red font, you will find important links for NEW students to enroll in our district for the 2016/2017 school year. A new student is a student who has not previously enrolled in our school system. Also, you will find links for "Intra-District Transfers" for Returning Students for the 2016/2017 school year. An Intra-District Transfer applies to a current student who would like to attend a different school in our system. If you have any questions at all, please call 650.558.2251.
San Mateo High School's Journalism program has been selected by PBS as a Student Reporting Lab! This means our students will make news videos with PBS' guidance, and if PBS likes what the young SMHS journalists produce, the station will air it on national television to an audience of a half million plus viewers! This is a wonderful opportunity for our students and a great honor for SMHS. PBS was drawn to SMHS, in part, by the high quality of Journalism's student-run website: www.thebearcat.net. As part of the program, PBS will fly Journalism Teacher Patsy Fergusson and Digital Photography Teacher Jane McCable to Washington D.C. for five days of training in July. And at the start of next school year, PBS will send professionals to our classrooms to help train students in the art of making TV news. The District team cannot wait to see what the future holds for Journalism students at SMHS.
Congratulations to Benjamin Cheng, a freshman at San Mateo High School (SMHS), who was recently awarded a national research grant from John Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) to create a more efficient enzyme that will reduce the cost of producing biofuels. Benjamin is one of the 10 winning individuals or teams out of 254 applicants from across the United States who received this year’s CTY Cogito Research Award for aspiring middle and high school STEM researchers. Ten grants of $599 each were awarded to students who submitted outstanding proposals for research in science, technology, engineering, or math fields. Student researchers will use the funds to purchase equipment, rent lab space, or pay for other project-related needs. Benjamin and his fellow award winners will work with supervising mentors as they see their projects through to the end and write final reports on results. Congratulations Benjamin!
