St. Matthew Catholic School


St. Matthew Catholic School is a coed parish school of over 600 Kindergarten through Eighth grade students. Our core values of faith, knowledge, and community are intertwined. Since our founding in 1931, we have been committed to keeping the Catholic faith alive and to building a strong, integrated academic curriculum focused on the whole child: spiritual, academic, physical, social, and emotional. St. Matthew continues to offer the same quality education that it has provided to families of San Mateo County for 93 years.
