Each Mid-Peninsula student is assigned a "Core Teacher," who serves as academic advisor, guidance counselor, advocate, community builder and family contact. Core meets every day, giving students an opportunity to set goals, develop their learning styles, strategize with their teachers about progress toward graduation, think about life beyond Mid-Peninsula and obtain support, counsel, information and referrals. Core Teachers are students' true partners in learning.
A Unique Learning Opportunity:
We strive to offer students every opportunity to explore and develop their talents, while understanding and working around each student's personal limitations. Other schools may make similar claims, but Mid-Peninsula takes pride in the fact that we consistently help our students find individual paths to achieve their personal best.

They are highly skilled, extensively trained and deeply committed to this progressive brand of education. They don't just teach their identified subjects. They form a team that collaborates in seeking the overall well-being of every student—in their classes, in others' classes and in life beyond the classroom.
These vibrant and talented people don't approach their work as merely a job. They know how important their role is in the daily life of a young person at Mid-Peninsula. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated group of faculty and staff to ensure that life at Mid-Peninsula High School continues to be a rewarding and fulfilling experience for our students and each other.

It is not surprising that Mid-Peninsula students and their parents readily endorse our school's youth-centric methodology and praise the benefits they receive from participating in our effective, integrated educational program.
More than 90% of Mid-Peninsula graduates go on to college. In addition, some of our graduates have pursued goals outside conventional education with the help of their Core Teachers, achieving success in fine and performing arts, technology, vocational arts, small business careers and other sectors.
Serving the Community and Wider World:
Community Service is a key component of the Mid-Peninsula philosophy. Students spend significant hours every term choosing and executing ways in which they will serve their communities. Previous projects include student-run food and clothing drives, working in local soup kitchens, working with the developmentally disabled, tutoring at-risk kids, participating in environmental cleanups and more.
