Welcome To The San Mateo Union High School District
In the near future, eighth grade students who plan to attend school in the San Mateo Union High School District (SMUHSD) will be meeting with guidance staff to choose classes for the ninth grade year at all six high schools. The SMUHSD has adopted the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) and the Scholastic Math Inventory (SMI) as placement tests. Guidance staff will use these results along with transcripts and results from the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) to help advise parents and students regarding course choices. All incoming freshmen must be tested. Please click here to see the complete testing schedule.
Attend this free community event, and gain support, education and information to help your teen struggling with emotional health, substance abuse, eating disorders and/or LGBTQQ questions. Three community organizations -- Adolescent Counseling Services, Behavioral Health and Recovery Services, Stanford Medicine: Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Eating Disorders Clinic -- will help you understand how to help your teen and yourself in challenging times.
Our community partners will discuss their programs, creative ideas to support students and families, and will answer questions from the audience. No pre-registration required. For questions, call April Torres, Health & Wellness Coordinator, at 650.762.0129.
For details, see the community flyers.
In response to the Bay Area housing crisis, the SMUHSD staff is exploring the idea of providing workforce housing as a way to attract and retain the best teachers and staff possible to support our community’s teens. The SMUHSD staff is exploring the idea of building housing at the Mills High campus and using the sale proceeds of the Crestmoor site to finance that project. To obtain neighborhood feedback from both the Millbrae and San Bruno communities, the SMUHSD will be hosting two community meetings to discuss this idea. Details:
