Mid-Peninsula High School, a community for learning, offers students a stimulating, safe environment that empowers them to reach their full academic and social potential.
As a small, caring, educational community, we work to strengthen relationships between students, their families, and the school.
We recognize and understand unique learning styles and create academic programs designed to meet each student's needs.
Our expectation is that Mid-Peninsula High School students will become capable, self-directed individuals who care about themselves, their families, and their communities.

School Reviews

This school has changed my son''s life! He was in PAUSD K-8 and hated school. I was frustrated as a parent because even though he had an IEP, he was not getting the help he needed. Now, becasue of Mid-Pen, he is THRIVING. I can not say enough about this school where every student is known and every student is cared for. If you want your child to have a great education in a true school COMMUNITY, Mid-Pen is the place!
