Reach Academy is a mid-size elementary school housed in a beautiful, sunny, facility in the Las Palmas neighborhood of East Oakland. We are easily accessible by public transportation. Our mission at Reach is to collaborate with family and community to raise young people prepared to pursue their dreams and take their place as responsible, caring members of their communities. We embrace the Balanced Literacy Curriculum, where every classroom is a library and students learn to read at their own level. Basic facts, number sense and critical thinking skills are honed daily in math class. In addition, students explore the world in our Science Lab, develop technology skills in the Computer Lab, and stay fit with our coaches in P.E. Reach boasts a state-of-the-art theater and sound system, a new library, and a Family Room. We also offer an expanding choice of quality afterschool programs and have a counselor at the school as needed.
