Founded in 1915, Oakland Technical High School (Oakland Tech) offers innovative, rigorous and supportive programs within small learning communities while bringing to life the spirit and diversity of a large, comprehensive high school.
The Pillars of Oakland Tech give voice to our expectations and values as students, staff and community members. We all commit to hold ourselves and each other accountable to the following:
1. Positive Expression
We use our words to positively express ourselves and encourage each other, because we all deserve to be heard and respected.
We honor each other’s voices, beliefs and personal space because what is play or affection to one student can be harassment to another.
We commit to keeping each other focused because we can’t excel in our education if we’re disengaged and distracted by noise and side conversations.
We collaborate to build a supportive community because a culture of connection and support makes us all stronger.
