performing arts

  • The performing arts are an excellent opportunity for students to find their passion. The San Mateo Union High School District is proud to offer outstanding theater programs in every high school, where students can find new friends and forge supportive relationships. The acting, singing, and behind the scenes work show off how extremely talented and hardworking the students are in the San Mateo Union High School District, and when watching the performances, it’s hard to believe that they’re high schoolers!
