Come see what GATE Parents Group is all about….
San Mateo parents of GATE identified students are invited to attend the September 20th GATE Parents Group board meeting, from 7-9pm, held in the Career Center at San Mateo High School (just inside the library entrance). 

Consider volunteering some of your time and expertise to help us continue to offer excellent opportunities and programs to our children and schools.  We need school representatives from several schools and can always use more talented people with a passion for education to work with us. 

We are a non-profit all-volunteer organization that works with the SMUHSD.  The GATE Parents Group is unique in that it represents parents and supports the GATE Program in all SMUHSD schools, but is independent of the District and other parent organizations.  We partner with the District in order to best serve GATE identified students in the district through education, enrichment, funding, communication, advocacy and parent and student support.

Our meetings for the 2016-2017 academic year are: 9/20/16, 10/18/16, 11/15/16, 12/13/16, 1/17/17, 2/21/17, 3/21/17, 4/18/17 and 5/16/17.  They are held in the Career Center at San Mateo High School (just inside the library entrance).  Please contact us at if you are interested in learning more or if you would like us to email you a map.
