    In addition to modern classrooms, students enjoy access to a state-of-the-art Media Center and Computer Lab with both wireless and hardwired Internet access.  A Multi-Purpose Building with a stage, wall tables and basketball court serves as a place for assemblies, dining, plays and sports activities.

    Classrooms are located around a central courtyard which features an outdoor theater and grassy knolls.  The courtyard also includes an outdoor lunch area. Outdoor play areas are divided into areas for kindergarten, elementary and middle school and are be located adjacent to a City park.

    The school is named in honor of Don Callejon, former Superintendent, Boardmember and dedicated employee of Santa Clara Unified School District for 43 years.
