Downtown College Prep Alum Rock High School is a small school in East side San Jose that foster the learning and academic competitiveness of its students. It grants amazing support to its first generation students and prides itself with multiple accomplishments in the community, the state and even nationwide. DCP Alum Rock High School focuses, strongly, on preparing students who want to pursue STEM based majors in college and through their careers. As a small school, DCP teachers and staff are able to connect with their students and provide various forms of support through clubs, sports and academic endeavor. This school is definitely underrated and should receive more acknowledgement for constantly preparing first generation, students of color to pursue and succeed in higher level institutions to further expand their academic experiences.

I've been apart of Dcp since 7th grade. I love how the students have strong bonds with their friends, teachers, and peers. The teachers are for the most part always giving feedback, and providing resources. The school overall provides a sense of independence for the students as long as they stay within school policy. There are many options for uniform including the traditional polo, college gear, black or khaki pants, dcp approved shirts, and free dress on Friday with perfect attendance. Seniors have the option for free dress on Mondays and professional dress the remainder of the week. While they do lack a large number of sports, clubs, and extracurriculars, there is a support system set up to help students find fun and educational summer activities. Overall, I believe this school was the best fit for me and my personal and academic roles, and I'm glad I got the resources and help I needed from the administration and staff.
DCP Alum Rock High School is full of dedicated teachers that want excellence and a big future for their students. Counselours, staff, and teachers help you so much throughout the college application process, they keep you focused and encouraged. As a student who is nervous about college life, I have been getting the help and support I need from anyone at DCP Alum Rock High School. You get told everything about what college is going to be all about, allowing you to feel prepared for that next journey. They express your achievements and reward you for the hard work put in. I great change I see for DCP Alum Rock High School is an extended campus with a variety of sports, clubs, activities, and materials. Having a small and shared campus has caused a lack of these things but I know DCP will grow to be a safe and encouraging community for any student.
