Burlingame High School

Black Parents Association

Team Work Makes the Dream Work!

The Black Parents Association of the San Mateo Union High School District is a parents association made  up of parents, legal guardians, teachers and friends of high school students who are dedicated to cooperatively promoting quality education for African, African-American, and Multi-Racial students. Through collective participation and support, we help to enrich our students' journey through high school while preparing them for college.

We meet the first Tuesday of each month in the San Mateo High School library (506 N. Delaware) from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  We host informative parent, teacher, and student meetings which feature guest speakers whom provide valuable information and resources.  Our monthly meetings are also a networking opportunity to help parents and students stay connected throughout their high school years.  The BPA goal is to enhance the academic experience for our students who are preparing for college by:

  • Providing timely and relevant information about colleges and trade programs
  • Resources to help assist students with their high school experience
  • College scholarships and application support
  • Providing academic achievement awards and recognition of scholastic excellence

‚ÄčWe eagerly look forward to your ideas and suggestions in order to help the BPA continue to flourish and serve as an effective resource for our students.
