Cupertino High School accommodates diversity extremely well and harbors a safe environment for all students. There are a plethora of clubs, activities, and classes for students of different interests (take Tino Stress Relief Club, Muslim Student Association Club, CHS Robotics, etc). The teachers here are very attentive and ready to help the students, yet the academics are very rigorous and can rack up several hours of homework for students, depending on how many APs the student takes and how well they can withhold their load. Hours spent on homework in Cupertino ranges from around 3-6 hours, plus the average student in Cupertino does partake in extracurriculars. Most everybody is preoccupied with maintaining their grades and padding their resumés, and as a result students are usually filled to the brim with stress. It DOES pay off however, the graduation rate is extremely high and students do transfer to fantastic colleges after high school.
Review Cupertino High School
Cupertino High School is part of the highly regarded Fremont Union High School District. Many of the teachers that work for Cupertino High have high education, are generally enthusiastic about their subjects and nice. It has okay facilities, including a new library, cafeteria, and administration office. Very crowded in classrooms, hallways and other facilities. Not the friendliest environment for students, in part because of the students attending and the relative focus on grades, SATs and colleges. I believe Cupertino could do better by reducing how many students it takes in every year to a more manageable number both for faculty and the facilities in the school. Also believe that the school could do better with a friendlier faculty that is more open to families of students.

A very good school academically but less so in regards to friendly atmosphere and environment.
Throughout the 4 years of my high school experience at Cupertino High School, I have been welcomed into the diverse culture and challenging courses that this campus has had to offer. This school has made safety a priority among the students and stresses the value of accepting others in order to make sure the students feel protected to learn in a safe environment. Cupertino High School has allowed students to take on rigorous courses by offering over a dozen AP classes to help students adjust to a college-level environment and to receive college credits as well. There are dozens of clubs on campus for students interested in business, technology, games, fashion, and more. Although there has been recent construction work that has caused some issues like crowded hallways, overall my experience at Cupertino High School has been extraordinary.
