Mid-Peninsula High School
Small School, Big Benefits
Dedicated to the belief that all students belong with expert and compassionate teachers, Mid-Peninsula High School empowers students with the knowledge and purpose to impact a complex world.
Classes at Mid-Pen are challenging and comprehensive, stimulating your curiosity and encouraging your critical-thinking skills. We offer college prep courses in all subjects while providing a flexible approach to assure appropriate course placement for all students.
Mid-Pen's "no-cut" policy means that if you want to join a team, you are always welcome, regardless of experience. With interscholastic competition in a variety of sports from cross-country to tennis, everyone can find a sport they love.
Summer@Mid-Pen is an opportunity for Dragons to take an academic course, repair grades, or enroll in a class just for fun.
Your Core Teacher is your academic advisor and your advocate, serving as a liaison between the school and your parents. Your Core Teacher knows your academic strengths and your learning style, and works closely with you and your parents to help you set and achieve your goals.
Students make important connections by playing music together, so our music classes are focused on making music not just learning about music. No matter your skill level, you will be playing in an ensemble from your first day at Mid-Pen.
Got an interest in bicycle repair or glass blowing? How about a yen to see the Parthenon in Athens or the museums of Los Angeles? Our DragonWeek each spring gives you the chance to pursue personal interests through ungraded, immersive experiences in the arts, humanities, science, and technology.
