Founded in 1893 in Palo Alto, The Harker School is a preschool through grade 12, nonprofit independent school. We are committed to providing a nationally recognized program for our students that allows them to flourish, find their passions and make a difference in the world.
We are equally committed to providing a respectful and collaborative environment, both within our campus community and in the San Jose neighborhoods where our campuses are located. We have four campuses, one for each division: preschool, lower school, middle school and upper school. It is our hope that this page provides helpful information to our neighbors; it also includes ways to contact us if you have ideas or concerns.
4525 Union Avenue I San Jose, CA
Our Union Avenue campus currently serves our preschool families. In August 2021 the Union Avenue campus will become home to our middle school students.
4300 Bucknall Road I San Jose, CA
Our Bucknall Avenue campus is home to our lower school (K-5) students. This campus has two drop-off and pickup zones and crosswalk guards for the neighborhood on school days. We have a shuttle between this and the other Harker campuses to help reduce cars. For larger school events, we open the campus field for parking, and contract with a local church to use their parking lot so we can shuttle visitors to the campus to reduce neighborhood traffic. We send regular reminders and video "how-tos" to parents to educate and remind them of the school's expectations on safe and respectful practices in our neighborhood.
3800 Blackford Avenue I San Jose, CA
Our Blackford Avenue campus serves our middle school students. Harker leases this campus from the Campbell Union School District, but will be moving the middle school division to the current preschool campus on Union Avenue in August 2021. A long internal drop-off pattern and intercampus shuttle help reduce cars in the neighborhood and there is sufficient on-campus parking for all school events. We send regular reminders and video "how-tos" to parents to educate and remind them of the school's expectations on safe and respectful practices in our neighborhood.
500 Saratoga Avenue I San Jose, CA
Our Saratoga Avenue campus serves our upper school students, grades 9-12. Two long internal drop-off options, as well as an intercampus shuttle, help reduce traffic and cars in the neighborhood. As we do for all our campuses, we send regular reminders and video "how-tos" to parents to educate and remind them of the school's expectations on safe and respectful practices in our neighborhood.
