• Welcome to CDS! Welcome to Community Day School

    Oakland Unified School District


  • Community Day School is an alternative program in Oakland Unified School District dedicated to using a therapeutic approach and Restorative Justice approach to give students a second opportunity to succeed in school.

    Our goal is to empower and build upon students’ strengths by supporting them academically, socially, and emotionally, through individual and small instruction, counseling, and career exploration.


  • Every student at Community Day will have a renewed educational experience that will broaden their worldview by incorporating self-awareness and positive life experiences. This will prepare students in school, which will manifest in their future endeavors.
