Welcome to SJND! 

We’re glad you’re here.  Since 1881 we have been welcoming students, educators, and guests to our tree lined campus in Alameda, California. A campus is more than just a collection of buildings, it is our students and our team that bring our school to life. We offer a timeless education in a warm and nurturing environment where students are given the tools they need to shape tomorrow.
