School History

Calvine gets its name from the California Vineyard Company, a huge grape growing enterprise of the early 1900s, located east of Bradshaw Road. Calvine Road was the road that led from what is now Highway 99 to the lands belonging to the company. Two small high schools were closed when Calvine opened as a third continuation high school. They were Omochumnes, with its Miwok Indian name, located near what is now the Education Center, and Pioneer that had been at two different sites during its short life.
