Cupertino is a Silicon Valley city located in Santa Clara County. With a population of about 54,000, Cupertino is located on the Western edge of the Santa Clara Valley, about 40 miles south of San Francisco. Cupertino enjoys a reputation as a high tech city in the heart of Silicon Valley. Headquarters city for Apple, Symantec, and 50-odd other high tech firms, including divisions of Hewlett Packard, Honeywell, Measurex, Sun, and Microsoft, this city is loaded with high-tech parents, who demand superior schools for their kids -- and they and the local businesses give strong support to the school system, boosting their performance -- which is what makes the home prices a bit steep. De Anza Community College is located in town. Cupertino is served mainly by the Cupertino Elementary district and the Fremont high school district. The schools score very high every year, with Cupertino, Homestead, and Monta Vista High Schools all breaking the 600 math SAT mark, yearly, and Monta Vista placing in the top three schools in the state. As a result, people move to Cupertino simply for the schools. Cupertino, like much of Silicon Valley, used to be mostly fruit orchards back in the 1800's and well into the 1900's as well. Cupertino has plenty of parks and open space. In 2004, the California state census counted 19,520 residential housing units, of which 11,976 were single family detached houses, 2,028 were single family attached homes, 5,507 were apartments, condos, or townhomes, and 9 were mobile homes.

Cupertino is located almost right in the middle of the heart of Silicon Valley. The city is famous for the quality of its schools, particularly in the area of computer education, thus earning it the nickname of "Computertino". Half of the city's kids attend schools in the 99th percentile, while the "bad" part of town, as many locals call it, (give us a break, please!) is served by the 98th percentile -- as if that really makes a difference! Yet, some people seem to feel that it does. (Perhaps their time would be better spent teaching their kids to lay off the video games and focus instead on their studies, rather than quarreling over 99th vs. 98th percentile schools!). Although employers are numerous and the commute can be a very short distance, traffic is often very congested. Cupertino is home to over 50 high tech companies, which wisely subsidize the school system to help promote computer skills in students, thereby guaranteeing themselves a perpetual labor force well into the future.
