Cupertino's architecture has lots of open space, and establishes a sense of freedom, as opposed to Monta Vista, which looks like a prison imo. There are no traditional crowded high school corridors like in the movies.

Mark St. John and Charles Williams.

These individuals really shaped my life as to who I am today. To my knowledge, Mr. St. John and Mr. Williams have retired. It will be years before they can find such accomplished and passionate individuals who brought out the best in me. Shout out to my teachers! especially Ms. Uji!

In terms of infrastructure, this school has all the resources a student needs to succeed. They recently invested in brand new iMacs and PCs for us. More importantly, they've just built new classrooms, with state-of-the-art tech. Cupertino High has had a rich history, which will continue, and I'm proud to be a part of it and enrich it.

Go Pioneers!

Cupertino High School is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, right next to the new Apple campus. As a result, students are driven and academics are accelerated to a degree that caused me unnecessary stress and anxiety, often ruining my academic confidence. But aside from the inflated academic rigor, my experience at Cupertino High was incredible. The school has many young faculty who teach with obvious passion and engage their students. The student population is very diverse, which has provided me with many opportunities to explore various cultures through clubs and school-run events. Additionally, there is a variety of student organizations to get involved in, from publications to rocketry, magic and music clubs. So even when I didn't feel myself fitting into the STEM world, there was still a place for me. Ultimately, I can confidently say that Cupertino High has prepared me well for college.
All the teachers really care about the students, and the learning environment is positive, outgoing, and fun most of the time. The AP classes prepare you extremely well for the AP exam. There are a large variety of clubs to join, and all are excellent opportunities to learn and have fun with different people. Last but not the least, the rallies are the BEST!
