Upcoming Events

Welcome to Oakland High School!

  • With more than 150 years of educational experience focused on diversity and equity, Oakland High combines the benefits of a large high school with smaller learning communities.  All scholars can access robust extracurricular activities like clubs, sports, leadership, and various elective courses, while also benefiting from more personal attention and support. 


    By developing the most equitably structured high school in Oakland, we have created systems so that every student is seen, heard, and cared for. In 9th grade, scholars belong to a 9th grade “family” and in 10th-12th grade, scholars participate in one of our 6 Linked Learning Certified career pathways. All Oakland High scholars are prepared for success in college and career after high school through the personalized support, rigorous curriculum, and work-based learning opportunities that our industry-aligned pathways and global class offerings afford. 

    Linked Learning Pathways:

    • Environmental Science Academy
    • Innovative Design & Engineering Academy (IDEA)
    • Law & Social Justice
    • Public Health Academy
    • Visual Arts (VAAMP) 


    Special Programs:

    RISE Academy - Recent Immigrant Support and Engagement welcomes newly-arrived immigrant students and provides them with a shletered space that supports their transition into the American high school education system.

    AVID - Oakland High is proud to be an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) certified school for over the past decade, offering the elective college-readiness class in grades 10-12.

    Dual Enrollment - The dual enrollment program through the Peralta Community College District allows scholars to earn both high school and college credit simultaneously.  Courses are taught by community college instructors on our campus during our regular school day.

    Block Schedule - The 8-period block schedule is a more productive schedule that deepens student learning and relationships. It allows scholars to earn credits more quickly, and teachers to implement more project-based curriculum.
