welcome to family education events
The San Mateo Union High School District and all of its schools host numerous family education events throughout the year. From college planning to teenage mental health, from how to help your teen navigate their four years of high school to how to address substance abuse, we have family education events on important relevant teen topics. These events will help you and your teen flourish as a family through these important development years. They are accessible to people of all abilities. And very importantly, they are often free to very low cost.
We hope you join us for as many of these family events as possible.
