This week San Mateo Elementary will celebrate Red Ribbon Week. Each day will feature a special theme and students will wear clothing to go with the theme. Please click on the daily events in the right sidebar to find out what we will be wearing each day.
San Mateo Elementary is an Accelerated School magnet. This school continues to follow the philosophy of The Accelerated Schools Project, which treats all children as academically talented. Students receive a solid foundation in the basic subjects through high-quality teaching strategies usually reserved for the intellectually gifted. This philosophy does not believe that learning should go faster. Instead, the inquiry method is taught to help students solve problems on their own or in teams.
