  • West Oakland Middle School

    Stands with Ahmed

    A few weeks ago students of the Engineering program at West Oakland Middle School went on a field trip to be inspired by the amazing finalists at the Google Science Fair. While we were there we stumbled on one of today's most famous young scientists, Ahmed Mohamed. The students were so excited to meet the young man who has made enjoying science cool again. They spent time discussing life, science and taking selfies with the Ahmed. The love was infectious and even CNN Money could feel it. Check out The West Oakland Rising Phoenix on CNN Money.

  • West Oakland Middle Scholars Performing at Outside Lands

    I am happy to share this link with you! This is a video from Oakland Spirit Orchestra's performance at Outside Lands. WOMS graduate, Emma Price, and WOMS incoming 6th grader, Nautica Reed-Gregg are featured. WOMS performers include Bre King (8th grade) and Aaron Gonzalez (7th grade). 

    Thanks so much for loving music and supporting my work in the WOMS band room. It takes a village.
    Love, Ms S

West Oakland Middle School offers a safe, supportive and beautiful environment for students in order to help them to gain a more positive sense of self and community, at the same time to become highly skilled readers, writers, spellers, mathematicians, scientists, humanitarians, and artists through our academic courses and enrichment opportunities. We engage students in critical thinking, enabling them to take action on what is important to them and their community.
We honor and respect each student’s background and experience. Our faculty takes care to develop in students strategies to identify and achieve their goals. Our curriculum challenges students to work hard, to constantly improve and to take pride in their academic success at high levels. We are dedicated to fostering students’ ability to work together, communicate effectively, do their best, and to reflect. We believe that when students consistently practice and master these skills they will be able to navigate high school, college, and career by making informed life decisions in pursuit of their dreams.
