My experience at this school has been somewhat short of a nightmare. The only redeeming qualities are the few teachers that genuinely care about your well-being and the friends that won’t stab you in the back.

This school has a storied past but has gone through a huge renaissance with all new staff a new building and some really great new programs!

The neighborhoods have changed since Oakland got so expensive. Lots of white families moving in

Though this site won the Distinguished Schools Award, it wasn't without the backbreaking efforts of the entire staff. This school has turned itself around in many ways. The students are great, but this is a toxic environment to work in for staff. Not only is the staff expected to work themselves until they are sick with all the long hours and committments, they are scared to stand up for what is right for fear of being let go. No one ever wants to be told, well, if you don't like it here, we will find someone else to take your position. Almost half the staff left this year to work somewhere, anywhere else. If this place was so great, wouldn't they have elected to remain?
