The San Mateo Union High School District believes - all students have the right to participate fully in the educational process, free from discrimination and harassment.  These rights are assured to students by CA Education Code Section 200 and Penal Code Section 422.55.

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. 


If you are enrolling your students for the 2017-2018 school year, please note that Student Services has moved to 839 Hinckley Road, Burlingame. Click here for direction.

Gettys Image  Illustration of HouseIn 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:

  • Thursday, January 19, 2017, Peninsula Alternative High School’s Library, 300 Piedmont Avenue, San Bruno
  • Tuesday, January 31, 2017, Mills High School Cafeteria, 400 Murchison Drive, Millbrae

Both workshops start at 6pm. Light refreshments will be provided. See the attached postcard neighborhood invitation: Crestmoor (San Bruno) Neighbor Invitation and Mill High Neighbor Invitation.
