My kids have been in the school since it opened 8 years ago so we have gone through both the elementary and middle schools. Fantastic teachers along the way. They have had many opportunities to connect with teachers and create a sense of community they would not have had in a bigger school. Their individual ...  Read more

I've been going to this school since it opened, and it's my last year at DC. Although I will admit that it's not perfect, it is not as bad as others are making it out to be! If you are judging a school based on test scores and certain students' behavior, I can't try to change your opinion. But I can ...  Read more

I have 4 boys attending DCS from K to middle school. The teachers are great, they actually care about their students and teaching. They communicate with you. We as parents have to be involved in our kids education, and ask questions or any concerns you may have, and reach out to teachers. They are great ...  Read more

This school is full of politics and egos of few people...... Most of the kids once their parents realize how bad their standard is move to the Magnolia Charter School or move to private schools...

I have seen the good and bad in this school and have read some of the negative opinions on the school and I think they are valid if you focused on the academics of middle school which are lacking. You can look at the breakdown of the scores. For some students and parents which aren't concerned about ...  Read more

Okay school. The facilities are good, but bullying is a problem here and needs to be prevented.

After thirty years of teaching experience, I'm glad that I landed at Don Callejon! This K-12 school is a real community with teachers and staff at all levels working together to ensure the best possible education for a diverse group of students. Many of the upper and lower grades form partnerships ...  Read more

Don Callejon is far from Perfect. The Elementary classes are pretty good, on par with other Santa Clara elementary schools. (Which are all pretty good) However, the big downside to this school are the middle school grades. Students are disrespectful, and many of the teachers don't seem to care. Issues ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
