welcome to college and career planning!
The job of the San Mateo Union High School District is to prepare teens for their next life chapter – whether that be attending college or entering the workforce in a career they enjoy. Our College and Career planning team is here to help guide students to the path best for them. We strongly encourage students and their families to take advantage of events like the annual College and Career Fair and to connect with your counselor for questions and guidance.
