Oakland Charter High School


 Oakland Charter High School’s goal is to provide a sound academic program that will foster essential skills and work ethic to all students. We expect that learned skills, ethic and knowledge gained at OCHS will be carried over to post high school life. Considering the unemployment rate for people whom lack a degree or specified training, and the dropout rate correlated to the incarceration rates for minority and low income groups; the stakes are high!

 Core Aspects of the OCHS Program:
Aligned Curriculum:   The curriculum will be demanding and the classes will be structured to prepare all for students for college.Classrooms are small and structured and  prioritized to prepare our students academically.  By utilizing small, structured classrooms, teachers can offer a more individualized approach to students and offer the attention necessary for academic and social success.  
Data Analysis: OCHS is a school that measures success by qualitative data. We do not ascribe to test bias theories or that sort of philosophy. We will prepare our students for the rigors of the real world as best to our ability and review our practice continually by reviewing different forms of assessments and capturing vital statistics.
College Bound: We will provide a college preparatory curricular model and atmosphere for ALL students. We believe that college is the surest path out of poverty and violence for inner city youth, therefore our goal is to prepare students for the rigors of college that will assuredly prep students for any post high school program that they seek. Our goal is college ready first!
