About This School
Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students. Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems.

Calaveras Hills High School Reviews
By A Student
I went here from 75 to 78. If not for this school, there is no telling where I would have wound up. It really turned my life around. Teachers really cared about us & not just their paycheck. I have never forgotten this school. I owe my life to it.
It was a great school for me to realize that i couldnt mess up anymore and that it was my chance go graduate on time. I was lucky enough to earn a scholarship for college from them.
Cal Hills is a great place to go to catch up on credits. It had a
714 STAR score which is one of the highest in the state for an Alternative school. Cal Hills often has a waiting list. Cal Hills has a very successful Social Studies, Math, Language Arts and Special Ed program. Cal Hills has won many league titles against neighbor schools. It is a great place!
