St. Matthew’s, San Mateo opens new building


St. Matthew’s Episcopal Day School and St. Matthew’s, San Mateo celebrated the opening of their newest building — St. Matthew’s Hall — at the corner of El Camino Real and Baldwin Avenue with a ceremonial ribbon cutting on Sunday, September 7. This was an historic occasion in the life of the school and church, as it marks the completion of state-of-the-art classroom facilities, a gymnasium, library, MakerLab, along with the beautification of the existing property.

The opening of St. Matthew’s Hall completes the second phase of an enhancement and expansion project that began in 2012. The new Early Childhood Center at Charles House — located at the corner of Second Avenue and El Camino Real — opened in September of 2013. This new building will enable St. Matthew’s Episcopal Day School to grow enrollment to meet growing demand for education. Enrollment will grow each year beginning this school year with two classes each in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and sixth grade until full enrollment is reached in 2019. St. Matthew’s has educated students for over sixty years, providing children in preschool through eighth grade an academically enriched education in heart, mind, body, and spirit.
