Oakland High School sits five miles west of downtown Tacoma, Washington and enrolls 250-300 students ages 14 to 21.
Oakland is an accredited high school and serves students in a smaller, supportive environment. Unlike the larger comprehensive
high schools in the Tacoma School District, Oakland operates on a quarter-based calendar system. Students take three 90-minute classes
each quarter. In essence, students can complete a minimum of 12 classes in one academic year, the same as a comprehensive high school.
Moreover, students have the opportunity to earn additional credits through our work based learning program, online classes,
independent study courses, volunteer hours, etc. We are also unique as we offer a day care for the children of teen parents so they can
work towards graduation.
