Upper School San Jose CampusSprawling across 52 acres, the Bolles Upper School San Jose campus is nestled among oak trees and features stucco walls with tile designs. Bolles Hall built in 1925 as the San Jose Hotel, resembles an ancient Spanish castle and exudes the dignity and charm of the era. The building, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was founded in 1933 as a boys military school. It now provides resident housing for up to 60 male boarders attending Bolles, as well as newly renovated classroom facilities and office space on the first and second floors. Like all Bolles campuses, the San Jose Campus is wired for optimal technology use in the classroom and also houses leading edge technology tools, including a 3-D printer, computer labs and robotic equipment. A riverfront Marine Science lab also provides exciting space for marine study. Other important buildings on campus include Ulmer Hall, Schultz Hall, Swisher Library, the Bent Student Center, Davis Gym, Cain Gymnasium, the McGehee Auditorium and the comprehensive Cindy and Jay Stein Fine Arts Center, which includes the Lucy B. Gooding Gallery, Lynch Theater and several art studios and music rooms. Athletic facilities used by students of all ages are included in the San Jose Campus expanse such as JD Collins Stadium at Hugh Donovan Field, Skinner-Barco Stadium and George H. Hodges Field, the Bent Tennis Complex, the McKenzie Wilson Softball Field, the Peyton Boathouse and Rice Family Crew Complex, the Lobrano Pool and the Garces Diving Facility, among many others.
