OUR STEM FOCUS
As part of the Oakland Unified School District’s “STEM Corridor,” West Oakland Middle School gives students a range of learning opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math. Our recently modernized campus — with a new computer lab and renovated classrooms — provides the perfect setting for our STEM focus.
• Our fully-equipped Science Lab offers students hands-on and project-based learning.
• Technology is everywhere on our campus, which we recently modernized to include an updated technology center/Library, Promethean Boards, Chromebooks and Smart Pens in our classrooms, and more.
• STEM field trips to STEM-based companies such as Pixar, Facebook, Expression College of Digital Arts, and more.
• Science Night brings families (and students from nearby Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary) together to witness our students’ science learning in action.
