The mission of Christa McAuliffe is to develop well-rounded students who are academically prepared, intellectually curious, adept at critical thinking, and possess problem-solving skills. It is our goal to prepare our students for personal success now, in high school and beyond, through the development of higher-order reasoning abilities.
Parent participation is an important part of supporting Christa McAuliffe philosophy. Parents are trained to work in classrooms to facilitate effective small group instruction. The time and talents of our parents make possible the rich, dynamic and flexible curriculum that individually challenges each child.
Christa McAuliffe School serves the residents of the Cupertino Union School District, providing an education that develops critical thinking and higher order cognitive skills - evaluation, analysis, and synthesis.
