McAuliffe TK-5 Program

Our Mission

Christa McAuliffe is one of CUSD's alternative schools. The focus is on developing well-rounded students who are academically prepared, intellectually curious, adept at critical thinking, and effective problem-solvers. We aim to prepare our students for personal success now, in high school and beyond, through the development of higher-order reasoning abilities and the social-emotional skills required to resolve conflicts and build relationships.

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.
