About This School

Bay Area Technology School is located in Oakland, CA and is one of 170 schools in Oakland Unified School District. It is a charter school that serves 188 students in grades 6-12.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Bay Area Technology School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Do not send your children here.

By a Teacher on

I worked here. I've seen the ins and outs. I left as soon as the school year was over out of moral obligation. Do not send your school to this incompetent school. California state funds are being wasted.
