There are many things that I like about San Mateo Adult School (SMAS). Students are placed in the right class for them according to their results of the placement test. Students can join different clubs and engage in social activities. There is an option for everybody. But what I absolutely love about SMAS is the diversity, not only from the students, but also the teachers and the administrative personnel at the SMART Center who provide excellent service and help and encourage students with all types of backgrounds.
