Prospective Families

Thank you for your interest in learning about the Oakland Tech community and in exploring all of the reasons and ways we’re Bulldog proud.

The strength of Oakland Technical High School (Oakland Tech) continues to be its academic reputation and emphasis on maintaining small learning communities, while enjoying the spirit and school climate of a large, comprehensive high school. The environment on campus is urban in culture with diverse metropolitan attitudes.

The proximity of the University of California, Berkeley, California State University, East Bay, the myriad of private colleges and universities, and the Bay Area’s business community has created a socially rich community with high academic expectations and a strong belief in quality public education. The student body reflects the Bay Area’s vast range of racial, ethnic, educational, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Oakland Tech's Shadow Days

The best way for prospective students to learn about Oakland Technical High School is to be a Bulldog for the day! Current 8th graders are invited on campus for a first-hand look into a typical day at our high school. They will attend classes with an Oakland Tech Student Shadow Host, eat lunch with new friends, and get the chance to tour the campus, meet teachers, and ask any questions.

Students and parents can sign up for dates from December 6, 2023 to February 2, 2024.

Incoming 9th Grade Course Selections

A course registration event is often held at Oakland Tech’s Student Center in May for the following school year. For those who don't wish to attend in person there is usually an online registration form.

We also offer Summer Bridge each summer, an amazing opportunity for students to really get a head start and glimpse of what being in the 9th grade is all about. This program will give students the tools and the knowledge to help navigate their first year in High School and meet some pretty amazing people along the way who will grow with each other through this new journey.

We look forward to meeting you all!
