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!

I really like the diversity and welcoming spirit of Tino. Tino’s courses are definitely challenging and will prepare you for College. At times, it can be overwhelming but the teachers make it a habit to make class engaging and interactive. I also appreciate the support I have received from the teachers in the past years and I don’t think I could have hoped to have gone to a better school than Tino! Go Pioneers!
Cupertino High School made my high school experience amazing. The staff, students, and community are extremely supportive. The on-campus resources are very helpful and you will be sure to find ways to make the most out of high school. One con is the competitiveness between students when it comes to grades and rankings. Overall, I loved it!
