Welcome To The San Mateo Union High School District



San Mateo High School’s Sara Cowey has been notified that she will be inducted into the Jostens Renaissance® Hall of Fame at the 25th annual Jostens Renaissance National Conference in Orlando, Florida from July 14-17, 2016. The Jostens Renaissance Hall of Fame honor is presented to educators who demonstrate exceptional leadership by improving the school’s climate and culture, which is tied to improvements in academic achievement among all students at their respective schools. They have also made a significant impact in supporting the Jostens Renaissance Education program at both the state and national level. As you'll see in the above photo, Sara was surprised with news of this honor by students, colleagues and Jostens staff. Way to go Sara!


Mari Kojima, a San Mateo High School student and a talented dancer, has won a $15,000 scholarship from the Steve Silver Foundation and “Beach Blanket Babylon." Just this week, students performed in three categories -- dance, acting and voice -- at Club Fugazi in San Francisco. The deciding panel included Magic Theatre’s Loretta Greco, singer-songwriter Tracy Chapman and choreographer Val Caniparoli.

See the complete coverage in the sfgate. Congratulations Mari! Everyone at the SMUHSD is so proud of you for this accomplishment!


16 05 31 SF Chron_Suavez_BHS_Cancer Group.jpgBurlingame High School has many students who are not only high achievers, but who are also mindful of the world around them and want to make it a better place. This is best demonstrated by the group, Burlingame Cancer Research -- a group consisting of mostly BHS students who spend their free time trying to better understand cancer. These teens meet every Saturday and some weekdays to talk about the latest cancer findings. They discuss findings, write about them and communicate their research through a website and a youtube channel. They have fun while educating their community about the latest research on cancer. See the complete coverage in the San Francisco Chronicle. Photo Credit: San Francisco Chronicle, Liz Hafalia.
