Oakland School for the Arts is a public charter school located in the historic Fox Theater in downtown Oakland, with a mission to provide students with intensive pre-professional training in the arts, while maintaining high academic standards within a college preparatory curriculum. It is also the only school of its kind in California that serves students from grade 6-12. In 2009, it was only one of seven high schools in Alameda County to be recognized as a California Distinguished School: an honor given to only 10% of California’s middle and high schools (see link here: http://www.cde.ca.gov/nr/ne/yr09/yr09rel48.asp).
