San Mateo Adult School students achieve success in many ways and many places. After gaining skills in the classroom, many go on to college and career.  Others bring their skills to family and community life.   Many become volunteers in children’s or grandchildren’s classrooms or in the local community, such as at Samaritan House.  Some start small businesses.   Some come back to San Mateo Adult School as staff members.

You can read some of their inspiring stories on the SMACE Success blog and the Learner to Earner page.
