Parent Education has long been an important component of the Menlo-Atherton PTA offerings. Through presentations from leading experts, the M-A Parent Education Series offers the Menlo-Atherton and SUHSD community enriching education to improve the academic, physical, mental, and social-emotional health and success of our students.

Note: the M-A Parent Education Series is now a District-wide initiative, with programs at M-A, Woodside, and Sequoia.  For more information about the Parent Education Series, please click here.
