Is San Jose State University a good college to attend for computer programming?
Here's some data from google images below:
Honestly, you might be better off not going. That's just my opinion. Any CS degree from anywhere is impressive now a days. I wouldn't worry about what college has the best program, as long as you actually get a CS you're fine

Interesting question you bring up, and it is exciting to hear that you have a plan for after high school. That's great!
As Tristan said, getting the CS degree is probably more important than where it came from. However, there are a few things to consider on this as well. College, while certainly a learning environment, can also be a great networking environment. From the link you provided I would guess that Apple is on your radar for employment. That's an awesome goal.
Certainly going to a college which has lots of alumni working at a company won't hurt. They will know the academic program, know the instructors, etc. That in and of itself can make going to SJSU worth it. Likely better than having a CS degree from Billy-Bob's Beauty and Computer College. Long term though, Tristan's point of having the degree is more important than where it came from.
Just my thoughts.
Best of luck,
