Alumni

San Mateo Adult & Career Education loves hearing from Alumni – former students. Your successes tells us we are doing a good job. Your feedback about your time at San Mateo Adult School shows us where we can improve. Your wisdom helps current and future students.

Sometimes former students return to our school for events, to talk to current students or to speak on Success Panels. We really appreciate their visits and their willingness to share what they know and have learned. Alumni light a way forward for others.
