Peninsula Union is a place where dreams come true.


Small schools are a special place, where all staff members have our individuals roles, but we are all beholden to the bigger picture of serving students. We have the opportunity to know each and every student as a whole person, and serve their educational needs from that place of personal understanding.

Peninsula Union is grateful to work with the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at HSU, and members of the community, in creating a school where diversity is celebrated and students learn the principles of cultural humility.
