About this school

Kaiser Elementary School provides a stimulating and creative learning environment where all students feel respected, valued, safe, and supported. We celebrate and nurture children from all of Oakland's neighborhoods, socio-economic levels, and cultural backgrounds. We welcome children from diverse family structures including gay/lesbian parents, single parent, and mixed-race households. We seek to impart the necessary skills for student excellence, and to produce well-rounded, reflective, and socially aware individuals. Our staff of lifelong learners works closely with our families and students to provide an exciting learning environment where we all work to meet our goals to 1) Provide a place where the "family spirit" prevails; 2) Promote academic excellence and encourage diversity; 3) Provide teaching that is holistic, interactive and facilitative; and 4) Provide and maintain an aesthetically-pleasing environment. The staff has an average of thirteen years of teaching experience. As part of being a professional learning community, our teachers meet weekly to collaborate about essential learning, assessments, and intervention. Our school uses all District-approved texts and curricula and meets the needs of those above and below grade level through differentiation techniques in the classroom. We enrich the base program through library, computer, P.E., music, and art classes. Every fourth and fifth grader studies a musical instrument. Parents enrich and support our instructional program through the Parent Teachers Association (PTA) membership and committee work. Our parents also provide support in the areas of classroom volunteer and clerical support, tutoring, office support, event and field trip chaperoning.
