Oakland International High School is a small school for recent immigrants who are learners of English. We serve students from many countries such as Mexico, El Salvador, China, Vietnam, Mongolia, Ghana, Yemen, Congo, etc. All teachers are trained to help students develop their speaking, writing, and reading skills in English so they can graduate from high school and attend college. Classes are small in order for students to receive individual attention from teachers as they learn English. After school, students may participate in a tutorial program provided by students from the University of California at Berkeley, sports programs, or art classes. Oakland International also provide supports for immigrant families. Translation services are available for parents. Each student has an advisor who regularly calls and meets with parents. Oakland International will provide a safe and supportive environment that helps to prepare students new to the U.S. for college, work and participation in a democratic society.
