College Board

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. 

MHS Vision

Student Achievement will lead Milpitas High School to be recognized as a model of innovation in education.

New MHS Principal

At the April 22, 2014 meeting, the Board of Trustees of the Milpitas Unified School District appointed Cheryl Lawton as the next principal of Milpitas High School, beginning July 1, 2014.  Ms. Lawton is currently serving as Co-Principal of Hillsdale High School in the San Mateo Union High School District.  During her eight years as Co-Principal, she helped lead Hillsdale High’s implementation of small learning communities and has school-wide responsibilities in many areas.  Prior to becoming an administrator, Ms. Lawton taught math at Hillsdale High for two years and was also part of the early years of Evergreen Valley High School in San Jose.  In a way, she is returning home to Milpitas High where she taught for ten years in the math department and Digital Business Academy.

During a site visit to Hillsdale High School, all of her colleagues expressed a common picture of Ms. Lawton – passionate, dedicated, a commitment to excellence, and a vision for the future.  She is someone who does whatever it takes to create a great teaching and learning environment for all teachers and students.  We are excited to welcome Cheryl Lawton as our next principal of Milpitas High School.

Common Core Standards

California is among 44 states adopting Common Core Standards (CCS). These standards will encourage students to become self-directed achievers, effective communicators, and complex thinkers who are  savvy information processors, creative, collaborative, and motivated workers who think clearly in  new situations and be comfortable sharing their ideas.


The Mission of Common Core is to provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are  expected to learn. Students will develop skills in Critical thinking, Collaboration, Communication,  and creativity: the 4Cs. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world,  reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and  professional careers. With Common Core, our students will be prepared to be successful in the  global economy.

At MHS there has already been an instructional shift – Common Core is a skill set that students at  MHS have already been learning.  The focus of the Common Core curriculum is Language Arts and Math.  Students are taught skills in all subjects for gathering information from various sources and  applying their knowledge in order to solve a problem. These skills will be tested with the new  Smarter Balance assessments being administered to students throughout California in the spring of  2015.

SchoolPool--Carpool Program!

An exciting new FREE Carpool program! 

Check out the innovative new service - School Pool. School Pool helps us to reduce car trips to and from school and other activities, thus reducing traffic-related congestion and greenhouse–gas emissions.  We encourage families to register online to join a School Pool to carpool, walk, or bike bike together to and from school with other interested families.  It’s quick and easy:

  • Parents register to receive a match list of other families who travel a similar route to school.
  • The match list protects privacy by sending only your name and e-mail or phone contact numbers (you decide) to enable you to discuss forming a School Pool.
  • This helps parents find and organize School Pools for after school to their many activities like sports, rehearsals, classes, after-care programs, and camps.

Our School District and schools encourage you to take a minute to check out the exciting new School Pool program. You can request a School Pool match list of other families interested in carpooling, walking, biking or taking the bus together to school. Register at: to help reduce greenhouse gases and traffic congestion in our community.
