Our Mission

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.

Our Core Values

Four ideals serve as the building blocks of our learning community: Respect, Kindness, Acceptance, and Responsibility. We believe these core values are vital for a supportive and productive educational environment.

Respect is fundamental to a community. Above all, we must regard each other with a measure of consideration and understanding.

Kindness comes from respect for one another. We can look at each other with understanding and gentleness when we have already developed a mutual appreciation.

Acceptance of ourselves and others stems from mutual respect and kindness. Acceptance is more than the acknowledgment of our commonality and differences. It is the belief that in recognizing each other as individuals, our greatest strength lies in our ability to learn together.

Finally, because we create and foster respect, kindness, and acceptance for each other, we have developed the very essence of community: responsibility, not just for ourselves, but for one another.
