Dear Monta Vista Parents and Students:
Welcome to Monta Vista High School! Monta Vista is a four-year comprehensive high school, founded in 1969, with a current
enrollment of about 2600 students. Approximately 97 percent of our students will attend college after graduation, and 2/3
of those students will go to four-year colleges or universities. Our school has a reputation for rigorous academics and an
extensive co-curricular program that is valued by the community. The staff takes great pride in maintaining a comprehensive
program that builds character and values responsibility, respect, and honesty.
Our campus is close to the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains in Cupertino, California, and
we are privileged to be located in the heart of Silicon Valley. Within a fifteen mile radius
you can find the headquarters for companies like
The school has recently
completed a phase of new construction and modernization. Many instructional spaces have been remodeled, and we now boast an impressive
visual and performing arts building, an expanded library media center, and an open-floor-plan administration building.
On a more personal note, it was my pleasure to send both of my children to Monta Vista. I also worked here as a math
teacher and served as department chair. In many ways I feel that Monta Vista is a second home, and it's my goal to ensure
that all Monta Vista students feel a similar sense of well-being, pride, and ownership in our school. We are all about
developing the whole child, helping students to develop academically, personally, and culturally. We try to maintain our
stated goal constantly in mind:
Educating the Whole Child and Educating Every Child.
