Inspired by Oakland’s rich activist history, ARISE strives to engage our school community in reinvesting their knowledge, wisdom, and resources back into our Oakland home. It is not enough for us to simply prepare students for college without also emphasizing the importance of their presence, work, and leadership here in East Oakland.

At ARISE we nurture, train, and discipline our school community to engage in a continuous practice of developing mind, heart, and body towards a vision where we actively rise up. With a focus on public health and community engagement - agency and self-determination drive our struggle to improve our own material and social conditions towards a more healthy, equitable, and just society.

Our program of study at ARISE immerses students in a challenging college-prep curriculum interfused with health themed topics that aligned with our Public and Community Health pathway. The curriculum emphasizes knowledge of self, critical consciousness, performance assessment and interdisciplinary collaboration. The curriculum is enacted in the context of a highly personalized and supportive environment, which provides wrap-around services through our socio-emotional counselors, college advisor, and advisory system. We are thrilled that 90% of our graduating seniors are accepted to a 4-year college! Please take an opportunity to learn more at www.arisehighschool.org
