Inspired Learning


Mid-Peninsula High School's campus is designed so our students can enjoy the outdoors as well as the indoors while studying. The school is the physical embodiment of its educational philosophy: a student-centered community. The bright, open building encourages students to work and share time together in a warm friendly atmosphere. 

With its curved walls, high ceilings, and light-filled spaces, our campus is a welcoming place with an unmistakable imprint of the young people who inhabit it. The hallways double as galleries for student work in various media: sketching, painting, silkscreen, and multi-media. One of the most prominent examples of this is the Mid-Pen mascot-a striking, dragon water sculpture that adorns the school's entrance-which was created by a student artist. 

The Enrichment Center-classrooms designed for interaction- are at the building's physical and figurative heart in which students gather, pursue research, and work independently or in groups. A few steps in either direction leads to the modern, well-appointed gymnasium- used for athletics and community gatherings-and the studio arts rooms. Adjoining the building are attractive outdoor spaces including green fields, patios, and other areas for learning, recreation, and relaxing.
