My child does not go to this school, she is a 5th grader this year. I checked this school out as one of our possible middle school options for next year. I was glad I did! I arrived there just as the kids were transitioning from one class to another and they were quite well behaved, and seemed happy to be there. I met with the Vice Principal, April Scott, and she was very helpful in answering all my questions.I got to see her interact with some of the kids, and I liked that she could redirect them kindly yet firmly, without belittling them. They seemed to like her. There are many after school activities, and the school has a very diverse population. I would feel very comfortable with my daughter attending here.

About this school

United for Success Academy is a small school in the Fruitvale community of Oakland. Our mission is to interrupt inequities in our community by ensuring all students are academically and socially prepared for success in high school and beyond. In order to achieve our mission, we have partnered with the community to offer services to supplement our academic program. We offer an extensive afterschool program open to everyone, a health clinic on site with dental services, on-site mental health providers, an academic counselor, young men's groups, a family center that is open daily, parent education classes, and much more. Additionally, we work together to create a vision in service to our mission: 1) Achieve Academically -- students are strong readers and writers, algebra-ready, and technologically proficient. They learn and demonstrate their understanding in holistic and varied ways; 2) Uphold Community -- students are engaged in positive, healthy relationships at school and in the greater Fruitvale community. Students celebrate and embrace their rich diversity of identities and experiences; 3) Create Solutions -- students are critical thinkers who are intellectually curious, advocate for their own learning, apply their learning and engage in inquiry/problem-solving cycles; and 4) Unfold as Leaders -- students are leaders who utilize their voice, talents, and creativity to advocate for themselves and others and to bring about positive social change in the school and community.
