Core - The Heart of Our Program:

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.

Mid-Peninsula's faculty is a specialized breed of educators who are caring, innovative, energetic and inspirational. 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.
