• Joaquin Miller Parent/Teacher Association (JM PTA)


    Our mission is to support Joaquin Miller's community of parents, teachers and staff in their shared goal of enhancing our children's educational experience by providing resources and opportunities that help all children thrive.


    The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a partnership between parents and educators who strive to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of the students within the school. It is also a forum for parents to obtain knowledge and voice their opinions about what is happening in their school. When you join Joaquin Miller PTA, you also join the California state and national PTA. Membership numbers count when PTA representatives lobby for support from Oakland Unified School District, the California Legislature, and in Congress.


    Joaquin Miller has an excellent and passionate parent/teacher community who work together to provide stimulating enrichment programs at our school. The PTA is an integral part of the school and we welcome your involvement.  The school is what it is today in part because of our dedicated parents, teachers and staff.  The JMPTA hosts 5 general meetings throughout the school year (dinner included).  The PTA spends about $1000 per student to provide services not covered by OUSD including the Computer Lab, Library, Physical Education, Arts Enrichment, Teacher’s Assistants, Field Trips and supplies for all classrooms.


    Due to unprecedented times during the Covid-19 pandemic, we still need your support to offer the majority of our programs in new and creative ways. Everyone - parents, educators, students, and other citizens active in their schools and communities - is invited to join our not-for-profit organization.
