Costanoa High provides an alternative academic pathway, where students from 10th-12th Grade can set their own pace while making time for life or work. Our alternative high school provides smaller classes, more direct time with staff and a shorter day to give students more agency over thier time.


"It's so good to know I have so many people in my corner."

Jasper Donahoe


"The staff help you stay motivated. They help with credits, getting a job, or even just if you're having a bad day."

Brisa Medina-Rodriguez


"There's always someone to talk to. They won't judge you and they're always here for you."

Ester Rodriguez
