About Us

The Alum Rock Union Elementary School District in San Jose is nestled in the beautiful foothills of the Santa Clara Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area. Alum Rock is a family-oriented community committed to its children and schools. The City of San Jose provides a wealth of cultural, recreational, and entertainment activities for all ages in one of the most pleasant climates in the country.


All Alum Rock students will be ready for the future in a diverse and competitive world.


Together with stakeholders, we provide Alum Rock students with high quality twenty first century learning that builds upon our culturally diverse community to prepare our students to be life long learners and compete for the careers of the future.


Alum Rock schools are neighborhood schools. Classrooms and schools represent the demographics of East San Jose. Parent involvement, community support, English classes, and health outreach services all contribute to school improvement. Standards-based instructional materials and safe campuses make Alum Rock schools a fine place to work and grow as a teacher.


The district encourages talented and caring teachers who are enthusiastic about education and working with young people to join the Alum Rock family. District-wide professional development for all teachers and administrators is provided to assist our staff in meeting the needs of our students. Support for newly credentialed teachers is provided by the district through The New Teacher Center, University of California of Santa Cruz.


Alum Rock serves a student body rich in racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity. Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all students. Professional Development is provided for teachers to assist students in reaching their full potential. The district provides a supplemental instructional program for English Learners as well as programs for gifted students and students with special needs.
