I KNOW WHERE I COME FROM.
We are privileged to serve a diverse population of Oakland students and families. We raise our 40 international flags high throughout our hallways to represent the various backgrounds and histories that our students come from. In our classrooms, we are committed to supporting students in reflecting on their personal identity and heritage--all because we believe that knowing where we come from grounds us in our goals for the future.
I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING.
College and career-readiness are among our top priorities at Roots International Academy. This means preparing students to be at or above grade-level across all disciplines, with an emphasis on literacy! Our teachers engage in a regular cycle of professional development, coaching, and observations to ensure we are continuously learning and meeting the demands of preparing Roots Scholars for success.
