New Highland Academy is a school in the Elmhurst neighborhood of East Oakland. Core elements of our school program include standards-based instruction, visual arts and dance, and an emphasis on our four core values: be kind, work hard, get smart, and talk it out. Our program includes rigorous, differentiated, and culturally-relevant academic instruction, arts integration, social/emotional skill building and support, and strong, positive connections with families. We help our students develop as creative thinkers, effective communicators and compassionate members of their community.
