Oakland Charter Academy District


The Oakland Charter Academy District consists of a single middle school, Oakland Charter Academy, serving grades 6-8. This public charter school faces significant challenges, with low academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and a predominantly low-income student population.

Oakland Charter Academy's academic proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science are all well below the state averages across all grade levels. For example, in 8th grade, only 14.71% of students are proficient in ELA, compared to the state average of 45.66%, and just 10.29% are proficient in Math, compared to 29.94% statewide. The school's performance has also declined over the past few years, with its ranking dropping from 1541 out of 2715 California middle schools in 2018-2019 to 2532 out of 2788 in the current school year.

Compounding the academic struggles, Oakland Charter Academy faces a high chronic absenteeism rate of 47.6%, significantly higher than the state average. Additionally, the school serves a predominantly low-income student population, with 84.96% of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. These socioeconomic challenges can present additional barriers to educational success and require targeted interventions to address the unique needs of the community.
