Steve Jobs’ Education Background

American business man Steve Jobs is probably best known for being the former CEO of Apple Inc. He has also served as the chief executive of Pixar Animation Studio and has served as a member of the board of directors of The Walt Disney Company. On August 24, 2011, Jobs publicly announced his resignation from his job as the CEO of Apple and was then appointed chairman of the company’s board of directors. EDUinReview will now take a look at this creative man’s education background.

Jobs was born on February 24, 1955, in San Francisco, California. He was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs; the couple also adopted another child, Patti, who became Jobs’ sister. His biological parents are Abdulfattah Handali and Joanne Simpson, who later married and had another child, Mona Simpson.

Jobs graduated from Homestead High School in Cupertino, California, in 1972. While in high school, Jobs spent his free time attending various after-school lectures at the Hewlett-Packard Company, where he also worked with Steve Wozniak as a summer employee.

After high school, Jobs attended Reed College for one semester but then dropped out. In 1974, he started going to Homebrew Computer Club meetings with Wozniak and began working for Atari. He saved his money and then traveled to India with a college friend, Daniel Kottke. He returned from India and continued working at Atari.
