Very friendly staff and a conducive environment for learning. Work load is very reasonable, letting students enjoy study and make time for sports and other extra-curricular activities. Graduating students enter top notch universities and have a well rounded development. Diversified student demographics make it attractive for kids to learn other cultures.

Too bad all the Eisenhower & DeVargas students get sent to this high school which bring down the API at Cupertino High. People paying more per square footage in the area between Bollinger , Miller, Stevens Creek and DeAnza having to go to school with people in area with heavy apartment Complex that belong to Eisenhower school and also Devargas has much cheaper townhouse rental. Oh, I think some of the Collins elementary school has to go to Cupertino High too. Cupertino High students from Collins and Eaton score much higher than those that are from Eisenhower and Devargas. They should move them to Fremont High.

I have a friend who moved to Cupertino last year. She goes to Cupertino High School now and she told me that it's amazing!! She's made lots of amazing, accepting, awesome friends there and she's really enjoying her high schools year at Tino!! I'm kind of jealous actually, Tino seems like a better school than where I'm at and I'd love to go to this school if I lived in Cupertino!

My kid has been in Cupertino High for the last three years. She enjoys the curriculum, activities and teachers' teaching. This is a school that gives our kid a balanced student life. The courses can be very challenging but still have time to do other things. The staffs are very friendly and most of them are very devoted. My kid never needs to go to any tutoring schools but can still get excellent scores in SATs. Some other schools in the district may have higher API, but the parents paid big bucks to hire tutors for their kids. Some tutoring schools even have the customized courses just for the students from those schools. School is just one of the place that your kids learn. Home is the most important place to raise a well round child.

Is an average high school in almost way, except that there is more of a focus on academics and less on sports. There a lot of cliques and stuck up people but there are also a lot of friendly and open people. Classes can be challenging and teachers range from being enthusiastic and helpful to not caring. Depending on who your teachers are and the people you encounter your experience can be very good or very bad.

I have 2 kids going there. If you want your kids study hard and at the same time have a great time then it is for them. I attended my daughter graduation in June and was very surprised to see so many seniors got accepted to great universities like MIT, Standford, UC Berkeley, Davis, LA, etc.. They deserve it from a lot of hard work and I am so proud of them! Just do not expect to go there just to have fun. Definitely it is not for someone who doesn't take academic seriously.

Cupertino High School was a huge let down for my first year. Even though I have only finished my freshmen year, I feel very strongly that I wasted my time. The student population is not diverse or large. 1700 students is little compared to other schools in the district. The school spirit isn't very strong. We are horrible at most of our sports; some teams have lost every single game. Most of the teachers I had are horrible. I learned more in my Spanish class in middle school than my Spanish class in high school. In one of my classes students get an average of a C on tests/quizzes. The teacher of the class seems to be blind and deaf; students get away with texting and talking. I'm glad that my first year is over. I might transfer to a different high school for next year. If you can, I suggest that you pick a different school than CHS, unless if you want to attend an extremely average school with no race diversity, poor school spirit, bad sports, oblivious teachers, and a small campus.

I attend this school and with the exception of a few teachers, the rest are terrible. This school as a whole was a horrible experience. Overall, terribly disappointing experience and a total let down. I cannot wait until I leave this school and finally move on with my life.

I am a student at this school and I am SOOO glad I go here. I was supposed to go to Lynbrook High School but I moved. Because I went to Miller Middle School I know what kind of people there are at Lynbrook. There, they are mean and make fun of you if you aren't as smart as them. In Tino, they wont make fun of you if youre at Alg. 1 or if you have a B in a subject. It isnt that the school sets a low standard, it is because the school is very accepting and nice.

This school sets a really depressing atomosphere. The people here does not like going to school because its too demanding. My son has a math quiz every week and a math three weeks. And as if that's is not enough, he has to write a paper or report almost every week for like three or four of his subjects. Teachers from all this seven classes are demading a lot of homework which is rediculous. They should be encouraging to students to enjoy learning instead of shoving all those work on them.

I would not recommend sending your child here. STAR test scores are deceiving. Sure, Cupertino High has a pretty good API score, but that does not reveal the true identity of the school. There are tons of cliques and there are very few dedicated teachers. Most teachers have obvious favorites. If you're not in the "popular" group, then you're experience at Cupertino High will be absolutely terrible. I regret ever choosing to attend this excuse of a school.

I'm currently a student at CHS and all I can say is that this school is extremely average, and especially if you live in Cupertino, you'd might as well try and move to a different area to get into a school that has a more academically inclined atmosphere. The academics aren't great, the sports are pretty bad, teachers are average, students are open, but not the best influence. If you want a school with more opportunities and departments that excel, also with students that will be a better influence move to Lynbrook high school or even Saratoga High

Basically, Cupertino is just an average school. I dont feel there is anything special about it. They do not offer as much as i think they could. The teachers do not seem as energetic or helpful like at my past school.

There is no school around this area that I would rather be at! This is my first year in Cupertino and I am loving it. Cupertino seems very united, and excited about school spirit (the teachers and the students) And they pretty much have a wide variety of classes of different levels. People say that Cupertino ignores it's struggling students, which is not true! There is free tutoring after school in the library, and a class called tutorial that requires everyone to go get help from a teacher. But it also gives room for the star students to shine! The school is divided into cliques and groups, but most of them are non-stereotypical. But overall I would say everyone is very friendly.

I'm a parent of a child who goes to CHS and i must say this this school has come a long way. My son is having a blast over at CHS. I have seen this school improve by leaps and bounds in the last 2+ years in particular. The new principal is great and has top notch leadership staff which i think has worked for this school. CHS have amazing teachers, good students, overall conduct is very good. Most importantly the school offers challenging courses, diverse course selection, counselers are flexible and willing to help and last but not the least 'diverse extra curricular activities'. High achieving students from CHS have gotten into UCs and other top-notch universities which speaks of the quality and overall academic exellence this school provides. Go CHS!!

I m an ELD (English Language Development) student at CHS. To me, it s a great school. There aren t a lot of racisms here. Students are really friendly. You can be friend with anyone even if you re an ELD student. Compare to my middle school, people always teased and discriminated me because I'm an ELD student. Consequently, I became shy and embarrassed when people asked what classes I have. When I transferred to CHS, I thought that students here are like the students at my old school. Hence, when people asked the same question, I avoided saying that I m an ELD student. I didn't want my high school life to be like my middle school life. But once, I accidentally said that I m an ELD student. I was surprised when my friends didn t say anything and were cool about that. Thank for that, I m not embarrassed of being an ELD student anymore.

I am very, very happy with the school and the curriculum it offers. It would be nice if they could offer AP Physics(since my child is not much of a Bio fan). But overall its safe and a healthy atmosphere;students who want to pursue have lots of opportunities. the teachers are great and focused.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
