Home of the Prescott Circus Theater
Prescott School was established in 1869 to serve students and families in historic West Oakland.
Ida Louise Jackson, Oakland’s first African-American teacher, taught here starting in 1925 -- 13 years before any other school hired a black teacher.
During the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, Prescott School suffered major damage to the building.
