Cupertino Union School District Reviews

7 reviews

I liked Cupertino Union School District. In seventh and eighth grade, there are a lot of different classes that you can take that don't necessarily seem like "college prep" classes- such as jewelry or woodworking. The teachers aren't necessarily personable (that comes more in high school), but they are trying to help you succeed. Classes are usually interesting, as long as you pay attention to the teachers and get your work done. The library is a great place to hang out, and sometimes there is origami paper and an origami book there. The library also has many computers, which are good if you want to finish homework at school. Sports aren't necessarily school-wide events, but they're still important to some people. The food is not that filling; it's mostly just a bunch of one-dollar snacks. All in all, Cupertino Middle School was a fun place to hang out and make friends at.

Very diverse community - but high-stress and competitive environment. The food around the community is great - especially with the new Main Street across from the Cupertino High School. The housing of course is expensive. Great schools are difficult to reach if you are a low-income family.
Mostly great teachers and experience, but board/superintendents have not been as helpful and dependable as they should be (ex: secretaries are underpaid ans underappreciated, fired superintendent right after her contract was renewed).
