Milpitas remains home to the first planned, integrated community in the nation that was featured in the documentary ‘54: The Story of Sunnyhills (video). All of MUSD’s elementary schools are named after the early settlers who cultivated the land in what is now Milpitas. The school district was originally Milpitas Elementary School District when it was started as a separate district in the 1950’s. Formerly, James Lick High School in Alum Rock was the closest high school to Milpitas. Samuel Ayer High School (now the Milpitas Sports Center, Teen Center, Calaveras Hills HS., and Adult Education Center) on Calaveras Road was built as the only high school located in the city. In the late 1960’s, MUSD was formed and included Samuel Ayer High School, which had previously been part of East Side Union High School District. In the 1970’s, Milpitas High School was built on Escuela Parkway, replacing Samuel Ayer High School which closed. Currently, Milpitas High School is one of the largest high schools in Santa Clara County, with more than 3,000 students. Meanwhile, Calaveras Hills High School, a CA Model Continuation High School, is one of the top schools in the state serving our most vulnerable population.
