Nestled in the City of San Bruno, given the District’s proximity to San Francisco and Silicon Valley, UC Berkeley and Stanford University, we are positioned as a gateway to the world. Flanked on one side by a generation of creative thinkers and doers at YouTube headquarters and, on the other side, by a gorgeous state-of-the art high school, our schools look east to an international airport and major transportation stations, and west to the dynamic Skyline College and an ocean that connects continents.
The City of San Bruno is rich in history with a population of 44,000. The school district was established in 1907 with an enrollment of 47 students. Today, our schools serve 2500 students in five elementary and one intermediate school that feed into San Bruno’s one public high school, Capuchino (part of the San Mateo Union High School District). San Bruno Park School District’s rich cultural and socioeconomic diversity is nurtured by a dedicated faculty committed to ensuring success for all students.
The District is recipient of numerous honors and awards of distinction and major grant funding to support educational programs and initiatives; e.g., in STEM, music, sustainability, wellness, early literacy. The District enjoys strong partnerships with the business community and City agencies, underscoring the community’s support and embrace of our students and their teachers.
With overwhelming voter support of a $79 million bond measure in 2018, the District is in forward motion with its two-fold vision for Schools with Tomorrow Inside to a) create 21st century learning centers that are necessary for students to be successful in a global economy, and b) to raise academic achievement and engage students in programs and curriculum that inspire them now to be productive critical thinkers who embrace diversity, curiosity, and innovation throughout their lives.
Transformation of our schools is also driven by the District’s recent development, in company with community stakeholders, of a Portrait of the Graduate. An initiative funded by Google, we have created a portrait of the San Bruno Park student that articulates the community’s aspirations for all students to have an educational experience that prepares them to be lifelong learners and positive contributors to society. The components of the Portrait will be woven into every facet of the District’s strategic planning.
It is an exciting time to be part of San Bruno schools!
