3/5 kindergarten classrooms are ESL >80% are on free or reduced price lunches with 200 families receiving a bag of groceries per week all kids receive a free breakfast and some get dinner. We're middle class and are wealthy in comparison. With these disadvantages we have the highest math scores and fourth highest English in Oakland and up there with wealthy suburban schools. Our secrets? Expect a lot of homework from excellent teachers. STRONG family involvement with a strong work ethic. We have a newly expanded and renovated campus. The only negative is a largely homogenous population a function of the 2 Cantonese to English ESL classrooms and the school being in the heart of Oakland's Chinatown. The English competent classrooms are more diverse. Our principal is new so I don't have much to add about her but the transition to the Common Core is going smoothly which reflecrs well on her leadership.
