ChallengeSuccess

Cupertino High School is participating in a program called Challenge Success, a program developed by professors from Stanford in conjunction with the Stanford Graduate School of Education. This program is dedicated to ensuring not only the academic success of all students, but also, the success of students as whole human beings. As part of Cupertino's ongoing efforts to provide a healthy and well rounded education for all students, this section of the CHS website will be dedicated to providing links and and information about the importance of the development of students as whole individuals. We hope you will visit this page often and become a part of the conversation about how to best serve the needs of our diverse student body.

Did you know?  

  • Teens need 8.5-9.25 hours of sleep each night.  80% of teens don't get the recommended amount of sleep.  Our CHS teens average 6.5 hours of sleep per night.
  • Teenagers who go to bed after midnight are 24% more likely to suffer from depression and 20% more likely to think about harming themselves than teens who go to bed at or before 10 p.m.
  • Taking the extra time to study for an exam or to work on a project is not necessarily a good idea, since the student often sacrifices sleep to do so. Then the student is not as alert during the test or the following school day, which inhibits learning.

What can you do?

  • Set and enforce an earlier bedtime.
  • Help your teen set priorities so that the work gets done with enough time for sleep.
  • Help your teen make course selections based partly on workload expected.
  • About a week ago, we asked all of our students to complete a survey on engagement and well-being.  We're still analyzing the results, but two numbers jumped out at me that are squarely in the parent domain and I wanted to share them with you.  Perhaps one or both could lead to New Year's Resolutions in your home.  

    •  Less than 2% of our students self-reported getting the recommended amount of sleep for adolescents (9.25 hours per night).

    51% of our students said that they never, rarely, or sometimes ate breakfast. 

    In conversation with your children, how could you help them get one more hour of sleep a night and make sure to eat breakfast in the morning?
