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.

Registrar:  Mary Nickel (408) 635-2800 ext. 4131

You should receive a letter with registration instructions the last week of July.  If you do not receive a letter by the end of July, please contact the registrar.  Most likely you have an address issue that needs to be resolved and that is probably why you didn’t receive a letter.  You will not be able to access online registration until your address issue is cleared.

If you have fines of any kind, you will need to clear those fines before you will be able to access online registration.  The Student Bank and Bookroom will be open for clearing fines beginning Monday, July 25.  Your letter will indicate if you have fines.

Badge.jpg US News and World Report 2015 Rankings for the Best High Schools in the US have been released. We have been awarded a Silver Medal. Our overall ranking for the country is 867 out of 19,400. Top 4%. For the State we are 176 out of 2026 for the top 8%. 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.
