Welcome!

  • Welcome to Burckhalter!

    Our school is an integral part of the East Oakland community where it is based. This allows for a close-knit, small family feeling which enables us to build the confidence and self-esteem of all of our students from every walk of life. Through this positive school climate, children know they are in a safe place and therefore, are free to question, learn and grow. 

    Burckhalter Bobcats Our goal is to implement programs that are standards based and instill a sense of responsibility, confidence, and positive attitude. Burckhalter has a computer lab with innovative and rigorous software, a fully staffed library, and Chromebooks for all 4th-5th graders.

    Burckhalter also offers Music to all K-5th grade students, physical education, and academic and enrichment after-school programs, partnered with the Ujimaa Afterschool Program & Kids Club.
