Burckhalter Elementary, recipient of the Title I Academic Achievement Award in 2011, is a small school nestled in a residential neighborhood at the top of Edwards Avenue near Highway 580 in East Oakland. Burckhalter's small size makes the school intimate; all staff members know each and every student and the students know all staff members and school volunteers. The primary goal at Burckhalter is to meet the academic and social emotional needs of our students. And we are a school on the rise! Since 2009, Burckhalter students have made great gains in the core curricular areas, including reading/language arts, mathematics and science. As the needs of our student population have changed, we continually change our practices to reflect new knowledge about learning and teaching. Our students are reading more, writing more, and learning more through themes!
