OUSD High school Recommendations: Skyline, OHS, Oakland Tech
I am reaching out to get feedback on several Oakland public high schools. Our 8th grader is academically very gifted and motivated and finishes work quickly. We are seeking a rigorous/creative academic high school to keep him engaged and learning. He especially loves math, science, computer science and engineering. He has a robust personality but is also a sensitive soul and would benefit from a school that supports community-building (including LGBT community). His current school is very big but breaks down classes into smaller families, and that seems to work fine for him. Currently looking at Oakland High School, Skyline, and Oakland Tech. We know schools change over time and would love an updated view into any of these. Any thoughts/experiences you can share? Are we missing schools we should consider? We are wondering about academics, community development, creativity/innovation...We know it's all up to the lottery, but just trying to look at what to rank.
