About Us

  • MPCSD  The Menlo Park Elementary School District serves parts of Menlo Park, Atherton and unincorporated San Mateo County. Menlo Park and Atherton are located 27 miles south of San Francisco and 20 miles northwest of San Jose, on the edge of Silicon Valley, two miles from Stanford University.

    There are approximately 2,932 students, kindergarten through 8th grade, enrolled in the four schools of the District.

    The District receives substantial support within the community through the Menlo Park Atherton Education Foundation, which granted $3,700,000 for our schools in 2017-18.

    The API scores for all four schools were in the top percentiles for the state. Our schools feed into the Sequoia Union High School District for grades 9-12.
