Alpha: José Hernández Middle School

Building on the strong academic results of our first school, Alpha Public Schools opened a second middle school in Fall of 2014 and Alpha: José Hernández welcomed its first 6th grade class. Like all Alpha schools, students at Alpha: José Hernández Middle School participate in a cutting-edge blended learning model.

Alpha: José Hernández develops students into lifelong learners who will enter high school with the academic skills, strength of character, and passion for learning to succeed in and graduate from college.

Led by principal Samantha Hanlon and staffed by talented and energetic teachers, Alpha: José Hernández Middle School is a safe and tuition-free community school serving students in grades 5-8.  The school is co-located with Alpha: Blanca Alvarado Middle School and is authorized by the Santa Clara County Office of Education.
