Welcome to the ARISE High School
Since opening its doors in 2007, ARISE High School, a small charter school in East Oakland, California, is part of the Coalition of Essential Schools network. ARISE serves 240 students in grades 9-12, with a focus on preparing students from low income families to be the first in their families to attend college.
At ARISE we Nurture, Train, and Discipline our school community to engage in a continuous practice of developing mind, heart, and body towards a VISION where we actively rise up. Agency and self-determination drive our struggle to improve our own material and social conditions towards a more healthy, equitable, & just society.
The MISSION of ARISE High School is to empower ourselves with the skills, knowledge, and agency to become highly educated, humanizing, critically conscious, intellectual, and reflective leaders in our community.
You are invited to our first annual ARISE Up Benefit Concert happening May 20th at the Lakeside Theater. For more information and ticket sales visit our page here.
