MetroED’s programs have a long history of providing high school and adult education to students in Santa Clara County.
MetroED’s high school program has deep roots in San Jose, California that began as San Jose Technical High School (1917-1958). The all-male school was located on the site of San Jose High School. The school moved twice before becoming a center on Hillsdale Avenue, where it has been located since 1968.
MetroED’s adult program had its beginnings in 1870 when it was called Night School. Prior to World War I, this was largely an evening high school to permit young adults to make up deficiencies in their earlier education.
