About Us:


Future Valley Education is a school that draws inspiration from the Silicon Valley spirit. Our teaching is informed by the latest pedagogical theories: personalized learning, mixed-age environment, and teaching for mastery. We utilize the latest tools such as Khan Academy to help better track students’ progress. We also inspire kids to become interested in technology and teach them programming in fun ways.

We provide strong programs in language and art - Chinese, English composition, math, reading, computer, robot, drawing, violin, and piano. We also help students complete their regular school work. We became a Girl Scouts troop early on and we are in the process of joining Boy Scouts.

Our campus is spacious (5000 Square feet) and convenient - we are located in downtown San Mateo. We aspire to be your one-stop education shop. You can entrust your child to us and we'll make sure they learn various subjects while having fun!
