Oakland Academy of Knowledge (OAK), a result of the merger between Howard Elementary and Roses in Concrete Community School, is in East Oakland with dazzling views of the Bay Area. We provide students with rigorous academic instruction grounded in the belief that students should be empowered to bring their unique identities, ancestries, cultures, histories, and experiences into the learning environment. Students participate in weekly ethnic studies, music, art, dance, garden, and Spanish instruction. In addition, we provide students with embedded differentiation, including adaptive seating, sensory tools, reflection spaces, and targeted instruction to support student learning and wellness. OAK welcomes all students into a caring, positive, and engaging environment where students come first!
