Black Parents Association


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


Every first Tuesday of each month, we host an informative parent/teacher/student meeting which features guest speakers whom provide valuable information and resources.  These monthly meetings are also a networking opportunity to help parents and students stay connected throughout their high school years. 

Our goal is to enhance the academic experiences of our students who are preparing for college by:


o   Providing timely and relevant information about colleges and trade programs

o   Resources to help assist students with their high school experience

o   College scholarships and application support

o   Academic achievement awards and recognition of scholastic excellence


As the school year progresses, we would like to invite you to join us throughout the 2012-2013 academic year.  Our meetings are the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm at San Mateo High School (506 N. Delaware Street) in the Library. 


We eagerly look forward to your ideas and suggestions in helping to make the BPA continue to flourish and serve as an effective tool for our students.  Let’s make the 2012-2013 school year one of the most productive terms in our student’s academic career.  We invite you to participate and we whole-heartedly welcome you.
