Oakland Unity High School is an amazing charter school! I have spent my whole high school experience in this school and I’m so happy I did. I love my classmates and my teachers, I live how our school have born we actually follow in order to respect ourself and others. We are a very small school but we have a big heart and mind to help our community and others as well. My school so far is the best my principle is amazing at his job and I love how he’s always there to support us and watching us through our journey. All my teacher are amazing as well I get the help needed when I need it and I always love that. I could not have chose other school that is not Oakland Unity High School. They help us get our credits that are necessary for college and prepare us in order to be ready to go to college.

Overall, Oakland Unity High School is a very great school and they put a lot of emphasis on the students. They really help out when the students are struggling and the teachers try their best to make sure no student fails. The support offered at this school is really great. Something they could work towards is the diversity because most of the school is Latinx. However, it is still a really good school that will prepare you for college and they always make sure to give you positive feedback so that you know what you can works towards to be successful in this school.
I love Unity high school, it's a small charter school with a very big heart. all of the classes are small so we each get individual attention from the students when we need help. It has a handful of resources that students can use to accomplish the unity goal which is to be college-ready, however, I would say that one problem is the lack of diversity but, I can see it changing. Some of the resources include one on one with teachers, p7, The teachers are always there after hours so a student can get help whenever they need. A bright side of unity small class sizes is that all of the teachers know the students and even develop a relationship with each student, the teacher learns their learning style resulting in a better education for each student which have their way of learning.
