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



The BHS Band and Choir give the gift of music to the community by performing at a number of public events throughout the year. A couple of those community events are coming up in October.

  • On Thursday, October 6th, the BHS Choir, San Mateo High School Chorus, Concert Choir and the combined BHS/SMHS Chamber singers will be performing songs from the 70s and 80s at the San Mateo Performing Arts Center, 600 N Delaware St, San Mateo, starting at 7 pm. Tickets are available at the door for $10 per adult and $5 per student.
  • Then, again on October 15th, the BHS Band and Choir perform at the 27th Annual Play-a-Thon Fundraiser that will take place at the Burlingame Train Station from 9:30 am – 4pm.

We hope you can join us for one or both of these events and support our talented BHS musicians!

BHS provided music for the well known Burlingame Pet Parade held on September 24th. They dazzled canines and "their people" alike with festive tunes befitting for a loved pet parade. Burlingame High also won "Second Place School Float" for its "Hello Dolly” float which aimed at promoting the school’s fall musical coming up later in October!


Is your student a junior? If so, your student may be interested in attending Middle College at the College of San Mateo. Middle College is a great option for students who feel ready for a college environment and who want to get a head start on earning FREE college credits. We are now accepting applications for the Spring 2017 semester. We have space for juniors and look forward to many applicants. Click here to learn more about the process and applications. Please email Don Scatena at dscatena@smuhsd.org if you have questions. Deadline is October 19th. We look forward to hearing from you.


The SMUHSD is saying “farewell” to its antiquated, over crowded facility and trailers, and saying “hello” to a state-of-the-art District Office scheduled to open in the fall of 2018. To make room for construction, Business Services and Student Services will be located in a temporary facility at 839 Hinckley in Burlingame starting in October. Business Services will relocate on October 7th. Student Services, including Special Education, will relocate October 22nd. See the flyer with complete details.


The Student Services Office will be closed on October 10th so the Student Services team can attend an important training. If you have questions for this office, please plan ahead. Thank you in advance for your patience.
