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.

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.
