As curriculum is developed specifically to address updated science standards, it is important for all students to have access to engaging, inspiring learning experiences via quality curriculum delivered through effective teaching practices.
Our focus is to provide students access to updated labs, equipment and academic support so they can more deeply engage in activities that help them understand science content and engage in skills required of science.
Through a partnership with PlayStation, teacher Cynthia Buenavista’s Makerspace proposal became a reality.
This Makerspace provides the community’s youth with unparalleled opportunities to innovate, problem-solve, think critically, learn from failure, and apply the concepts of the classroom to hands-on projects.
Thanks to the County of San Mateo Board of Supervisors, who awarded the Education Foundation with a grant from Measure K funds, we are helping the District meet technology needs in our District.

Since 2018, Gilead Sciences has been a strong supporter of the San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation, helping to provide all students access to engaging, inspiring learning experiences and resources.
Their committment to STEM education has resulted in the replacement of all chemistry lab glassware at Abbott, Bayside, Borel, Bowditch and North Shoreview Montessori as well as Chromebooks, digital thermometers and vacuum bell jars.
Thank you, Gilead Sciences, for your continued investment in our community and our future scientists!
