About us

In 1917, the four original one-room school districts in Cupertino - San Antonio, Lincoln, Doyle, and Collins - consolidated into what is today the Cupertino Union School District (CUSD). More than a century later, CUSD now comprises of 17 elementary schools, one K-8 school, and five middle schools located throughout the city of Cupertino and portions of Sunnyvale, San Jose, Saratoga, Los Altos, and Santa Clara. 

Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, CUSD consistently ranks amongst the top performing elementary (TK-8th) school districts in California. The District employs approximately 1,390 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) staff and serves a highly diverse student population of approximately 13,500 that encompasses over 20 nationalities and 45 languages. 

The District's Strategic Plan (see below) focuses on relevant and rigorous instruction, personalized learning, and a whole-child approach to preparing our students for success. With outstanding academic programs, highly-qualified teachers, and strong parent support, CUSD is proud of the robust educational programs in Math, Science, English Language Arts, and History Social Science we provide for our students, as well as school choice options for families.
