History & School Culture

With no high school in the Sunnyvale/Cupertino area, the West Side Union High School spun off from the Encinal School District in September 1921. The first year and a half the organization was devoted to conferences to determine whether the district should unite with other high school districts or start its own school. On Tuesday evening, May 1, 1923, it was unanimously decided to start a high school in the district. The school started Wednesday, May 2, in rooms of the Sunnyvale Elementary School Building.
