Are Alameda schools safer?
Long-time Oakland resident with two neurodivergent kids. I'm considering moving to Alameda. I'm wondering if Alameda middle and high schools have less fighting and bullying than Oakland middle and high schools. One of my kids is in middle school already and sees fights on a regular basis. He also hears a lot of homophobic and ableist comments. He was injured by another kid once and it was terrifying for me. In defense of his current school, it has an amazing autism program and a great community.
So what do you think? Is there a significant difference between Oakland and Alameda schools? Alameda is more expensive, so it isn't an easy choice.
