Milpitas Unified (MHS) is 1 of 22 districts in the State that has been recognized by the College Board for simultaneously achieving increases in access to AP courses for a broader number of students and improving the rate at which our AP students have earned scores of 3 or higher on an AP exam. Our pass rate is 76%, much higher than CA as a whole and much higher than the international pass rate. We have been placed on the 3rd Annual Honor Roll. Congratulations to MHS.

The Sunnyhills Neighborhood Association (SNA) is looking for volunteers to help us deliver our October newsletter and to help man our annual Halloween party. If you know of any students looking for community service hours, please call (408-942-1418). Newsletters are hand delivered by adults & students to houses in the Sunnyhills area (areas that surround the high school). Routes range from 30-90 houses and usually take about a minute a house to deliver--if one walks slowly. SNA, a qualified 501(c)3 non-profit, offers community service hours to students using the minute a house formula and rounds the students time up to the nearest hour. So if there are 30-60 houses in the route the student gets credit for an hour of community service, if the route is 61-90 houses they receive two hours of service.
