The Castlemont Business and Information Technology School (CBITS) prepares students for success in 4-year universities and the high-technology workplace. The small school provides a safe environment where students and families from all backgrounds are welcomed. Students learn to be collaborative problem-solvers, and develop character and citizenship. CBITS is the only Oakland school participating in the nationally-recognized New Technology Network of schools, and has more computers per student than any other schools in the district. Our curriculum focuses on learning through real-world projects. Students learn to use technology tools to present project work. CBITS emphasizes strong community values and supportive relationships. Students are assigned to an advisor who monitors and supports their progress. All students can participate in our Advanced Placement classes, and can participate in Castlemont athletic teams. Free tutoring, mentoring, after-school clubs and activities, student leadership development, and physical and mental health services are provided for students.
