Peralta is a small North Oakland K-5 Elementary School that is committed to providing our community an integrated art learning focus. At Peralta, all children will learn in an environment that is celebratory of their differences, rigorous in complexity, challenging, and joyful. We have partnerships with local museums, bookstores and businesses that support all aspects of our program. Our student work is displayed in local hospitals, offices and even in the American Embassy in Moscow. Student work is available on the Alameda County Web Site and on YouTube. In addition, we have developed a unique Intergenerational Project in which our students visit a local senior day care facility and do art projects with the senior residents. Peralta is a California Distinguished School and a National Blue Ribbon Award School.
