Principal's Message

  • Welcome!

    Welcome to CDS! Welcome to Community Day School in Oakland, CA. We offer students a second chance at redemption and success. This is my fifth year as the principal. The school is now in its 11th year. I am extremely passionate about the work I do with the students at CDS. Community Day School uses Restorative Justice and Social Emotional Learning to support students.

    We also partner with Seneca, California Youth Outreach; East Bay Asian Youth Center; Fresh Lifelines for Youth or FLY’s Program; Tobacco, Alcohol & Drug Intervention; and OUSD/Oakland Unite.

    We are working towards a seamless integration in order to provide a true wraparound support system. Students enroll in Community Day School after being expelled from one of the other schools in the city of Oakland or in the surrounding Bay Area. When they arrive here they receive small classroom instruction and Individual case management support. We look forward to serving you!
