Mateo Madly Preparing for STAR Tests

Why did Justin Bieber, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Billy Mays, John Madden, Austin Powers and Sylvester Stallone all visited San Mateo and talked on our daily morning broadcast? To tell the student body about how important it is to do the best they can on STAR tests. “It’s a fun way to publicize test preparation and awareness. The students need to know how important the results are to the school.” Said Ms. Shiu.

Four years ago, San Mateo High School was in program improvement, and the teachers thought of this plan to motivate the students to improve their STAR test scores. They did Mateo Madness that year and were taken out of it. Now we are in program improvement once again and the staff doesn’t want that negative label to stick to our school.

The “masterminds” behind the scripting of the current broadcasts are Mr. Appleman and Mr. Teague. They came up with the characters and the dialogue with the goal of motivating students. Everyone is listening to these little skits, just like ho people look forward to Peter Lebo’s puns.

The staff wants what is best for the students. If the school can get out of program improvement, we can have less outside interfering. Ms. Shiu said “We hope these broadcasts inspire the students to do well not just for themselves, but for the school.”
