Joaquin Miller School is a K-5 elementary school nestled among evergreens in the Piedmont Pines district in the foothills of Oakland. We have a diverse student body of approximately 405 students that come from all over the city of Oakland to learn and grow at our school. We intentionally develop authentic partnerships with families to make sure every child has what they need to thrive. We value acceptance, growth, community building, love of learning, and hold high expectations for all students. Our teachers and staff collaborate across grade levels to ensure academic success for everyone and ensure an environment of belonging where children can be themselves. We believe that students at all grade levels can be global citizens, environmental stewards, and critical thinkers. Every child deserves equitable access to a rigorous quality education in a safe, empowering environment. We strive for belonging, collaboration, and respect among students, families, staff, and all community stakeholders. We are working towards a future that is culturally and socially responsible, focused on equity, accountability, and growth; we recognize that it is no longer enough to just teach tolerance. We explicitly center anti-racism and restorative justice in our curriculum and community. Joaquin Miller Elementary School is such a special place for students, familes, and staff. We have a low turnover rate because our community is so welcoming, caring, and supportive. Several of our staff members are former JM students themselves! We hope you will consider attending one of our virtual school tours to learn even more about our school!
