• Prospective Families

    Thank you for your interest in learning about the Oakland Tech community and in exploring all of the reasons and ways we’re Bulldog proud.


    The strength of Oakland Technical High School (Oakland Tech) continues to be its academic reputation and emphasis on maintaining small learning communities, while enjoying the spirit and school climate of a large, comprehensive high school. The environment on campus is urban in culture with diverse metropolitan attitudes.


    The proximity of the University of California, Berkeley, California State University, East Bay, the myriad of private colleges and universities, and the Bay Area’s business community has created a socially rich community with high academic expectations and a strong belief in quality public education. The student body reflects the Bay Area’s vast range of racial, ethnic, educational, and socio-economic backgrounds.
