Calero High School is a small alternative high school of choice targeting students who have not found success at a large comprehensive high school. Calero is located in south San Jose at 420 Calero Avenue. 

At Calero High School, we believe that ALL students should graduate prepared for college and careers in a global society. The educational program at Calero is focused on collaborative learning in both classroom and online environments to provide an innovative and tailored learning experience for students.  Students will access all the courses required to both graduate and gain admission to universities.  

Calero's student population is small, serving 300 students, with access to a personal and supportive learning structure. Each student will have access to a personal computer and learn to use technology as a 21st century tool for learning, communicating, organizing, collaborating, and presenting. At Calero, we believe parents/guardians are an integral part of the educational process and promote both communication and partnerships between parents and staff. Calero will service students in grades 10-12. 

If you are interested in applying for your student to attend Calero, please complete a Calero application and submit it to the Registrar at Calero High School. Calero applications and enrollment forms can be downloaded below or a copy can be obtained from the secretary in the principal’s office at your home school, or the Administration Office at Calero.
