Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
Submitted by a parent · October 09, 2015
The teachers are so in tune and devoted. The kids really respect and respond to them.

Amount of homework: Too much
Submitted by a parent · October 09, 2015
But I disagree with homework in general. I think as far as most middle schools go, it's probably average. No more than a 2-3 hours a week

About this school

Edna Brewer Middle School is home to the Panthers. Brewer is a diverse middle school with 800 students and high test scores. The school vision has three categories: Academic Achievement, Community Building, and Total Health. Edna Brewer is organized into small learning communities called Families. Families help students and teachers build relationships, and they make our school feel like a smaller, more tight-knit community. At Edna Brewer, Panthers Work Hard. There is a lot of homework and we are transitioning to the new national standards, The Common Core, a few years early so that we are ready and our students are prepared. Edna Brewer teachers are the best in Oakland, committed to student learning and development. We have a strong elective offering and our intervention programming ensures students gain essential English and math skills. Our afterschool program serves one-fourth of our student body and we have sports teams including soccer, flag football and basketball. We have an involved PTSA and we are doing important work with OUSD's African-American Achievement Task Force. Edna Brewer is a great school!
