Join the Citizens Advisory Committee
Fremont Union High School District – home to Cupertino, Fremont, Homestead, Lynbrook, and Monta Vista High Schools – closely monitors student enrollment projections in order to best prepare for facilities, staffing, and course offerings for FUHSD students. Current projections indicate that while enrollment at most of the high schools is increasing, at Lynbrook High School student enrollment continues to decline. More information about this matter can be found at the FUHSD Page about attendance areas.

FUHSD Superintendent Polly Bove has created a Superintendent's ad hoc Citizens Advisory Committee on enrollment. The purpose of this committee is to study the enrollment needs of FUHSD and all its aspects, and to provide a report and findings in order for the FUHSD Board of Trustees to make decisions for implementation in the 2017-2018 school year. This committee will meet independently from the Board of Trustees and have an independent facilitator. For additional information about the Citizens Advisory Committee, and to download an application, please visit the FUHSD Page about the Committee.
The 2015-2016 school year is now in session. To view important dates including vacation and progress reports, see the School Calendar 2015-2016.
