New Student Center & Staff Lounge

We did it! Phase One of the new Student Center is complete! Over the summer a dedicated crew of administrators, teachers, parents, and students converted the old library into a bright, clean, and open multi-use space. Fresh paint, new carpet, and some donated furniture now sets the stage for Phase Two.


Phase Two:

In the next phase committees will work on the following:

  • Student Center Committee - Let’s finish this! With the blank slate of Phase One the team will design the new Student Center environment. This might include new furniture, enhanced Little Library, lounge areas, exhibits and a mural.

Concept Rendering (does not represent final design)

  • The Tech Story Committee - Let’s show Tech’s rich history and community in the Student Center and throughout the campus.

New Staff Lounge

To show appreciation of the teachers and staff at Tech, this summer the PTSA also created the new Staff Lounge, the first for Oakland Tech. Finally, a place where teachers can come together and strengthen the Oakland Tech community.
