What type of schools are you asking for, public or private, elementary, junior High or High Schools? There are many good public schools in San Mateo. There are 3 very good high schools, Aragon, Hillsdale and San Mateo High. I am a member of the Citizen Oversight Committee for the $298 M Measure M bond voted in last year for improvements of high schools of the San Mateo High School District. There are good middle (e.g. Borel or Abbott.) and elementary (e.g. Laurel or Baywood) schools as well.
