About this school

Elmhurst Community Prep (ECP) is a small middle school located on 98th Avenue in East Oakland. The ECP Family is committed to promoting all students on a positive life trajectory and ensuring they are prepared for A-G coursework in high school. At ECP, we base our work on four theories of action: 1) High Expectations, 2) Collaboration, 3) Positive School Culture, and 4) Family Involvement. We have an extended-day program that starts at 8am and ends at 5pm. All students attend core academics in the morning (English, Math, Science, and History), choose an elective, and participate in an advisory class, where small groups of students meet with a teacher to build positive self-image, strong study skills, and a sense of resiliency. In the afternoon, all students in grades six through eight participate in extended learning time, where they work on homework with a trained volunteer, and choose two apprenticeships from a list that includes businesses like Google, science-based work such as robotics, as well as sports and performing arts. While 8am to 5pm is a long school day, we believe that to prepare students for high school and college, we must all be willing to stretch ourselves to build the future our students and their families deserve.
