Congratulations to our Student Award Winners!


Huge thanks to all of the approximately 75 family members, staff, community partners, and students who gathered last night to celebrate another amazing trimester at PAHS!  Our dinner that evening was donated and prepared by our school staff, including chicken, beans and rice, salad, and many drink and dessert options.  We had presentations from both StarVista’s Insights program and the FLY program – two agencies with whom we partner for supportive services for our students – and then handed out awards!  22 awards were given for outstanding accomplishments in each academic discipline, 10 for attendance, and 30 students earned places on our honor and merit rolls this trimester – including 8 with High Honors with all A’s!  As our ceremony closed, many parents verbalized their pride in their students’ accomplishments as well as their gratitude for the teachers and staff.

Fresh Lifelines for Youth Supporting Our Students

I would like to thank the Fly Law Program for their help and support working with our students. FLY's mission is to prevent juvenile youth from making bad choices through legal education, leadership training, and one-on-one mentoring.  This program gives our students life skills to become positive community leaders.   This picture was taken on the day twenty-five students completed a twelve week course and received their certificates.


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.
