About This School

Alianza Charter School is located in Watsonville, CA and is one of 34 schools in Pajaro Valley Unified School District. It is a charter school that serves 623 students in grades K-8.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Alianza Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Alianza Charter School Reviews

By , a Former Student on

Alianza was the best education I have gladly received.  It has made me into a good learner I had gladly attended  to Alianza for 9 years and I had lived in Hollister at the time and had questions like  " why did u travel from Hollister to Watsonville"  my response has always been " Alianza has the best education I want especially it has helped me and made me to be grateful to be able to understand both languages and not only understand but as well to read and write.  Alianza is a very good school.  With all they're hard working teachers Alianza was not only a school with teachers and students it was my family.
