School Programs

History San José serves over 20,000 school children every year through fourteen curriculum-based programs. Based around our rich collection of historical artifacts and unique settings, our programs are designed to enhance the classroom curriculum and create an enjoyable educational experience for students and teachers. Students engage in inquiry-based discussions, drawing on observational skills, analytical reasoning, and creative thinking to enrich their understanding of history and its relevance to the world at large. Docents are trained to interact with students of all ages in developmentally appropriate ways. Programs are consistent with California state standards in a wide range of content areas, including Science, History, Social Science, Math, and English/Language Arts.

“I’ve come with a class for 10 years now and I still always learn something new.” Ms. Go, Majestic Way, 3rd grade
