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.
