Our 21st-century Silicon Valley children live in a social-media driven, capitalistic, globally-interconnected and rapidly changing world.

They are surrounded by wealth, poverty and a wide variety of technologies.

They are emotionally evolving digital natives and dependent upon peer approval.

Their ability to access and retain information is unlimited.

They are faced with some of the greatest opportunities and greatest challenges known to humanity.

The skills we are teaching (academic) are only a fraction of the skills they will need to survive.

We want our kids to do more than survive. We want them to thrive.

To ensure our Milpitas students thrive, each school lists its parent and community partnering  opportunities here:

There is no time to wait. The future is now.

Thank You.
