Welcome to Del Valle Phoenix!
Welcome to Del Valle and Phoenix High Schools.
Housed in the historic ‘Fifth Street School’ building built in 1876 near downtown Livermore, both Del Valle and Phoenix are small, continuation high schools. Once on separate campuses, the schools have occupied the same building since 2004, sharing staff, students and resources. Both schools are fully accredited by WASC.
The purpose of Del Valle & Phoenix High Schools is to provide our students with the knowledge, skills and habits of mind needed to be successful in their post-secondary, personal, civic and vocational lives: A place to learn, grow and thrive.
We enroll up to 180 students in grades 9-12; all students must be at least 16 years old to attend continuation high school. We offer state standards based core curriculum classes in Math, Science, Social Studies and English and electives that includes Digital Photography, Physical Education, Computer Applications and Work Experience Education. Additional supports are available to students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) and English Learners. We also have several long standing partnerships with community agencies like AXIS, Horizons and the Hume Center that help us to meet the socio-emotional needs of our students.
We pride ourselves on providing an individualized, small learning environment that supports students to become responsible and capable workers, active community members, resilient individuals, effective communicators and capable thinkers.
