Oakland school district hosts high school fair
on December 13, 2017
As Oaklanders approach the middle of the academic school year, both parents and middle school students are beginning to plan ahead by figuring out which high school will be the best fit for them next year.
The Oakland Unified School District hosted a high school fair at Roosevelt Middle School on December 6, which attracted approximately 30 parents and students. During the fair, they had the chance visit with different high schools’ representatives and get their questions answered.
School representatives from a handful of schools were present at the event, including Latitude High School, Skyline High School, Oakland Senior High School, and Oakland Technical High School. They were handing out brochures, and informing potential students about the unique programs their school offers. Parents and students left with flyers from schools they are interested in for 2018-2019 school year.
