Welcome to the ARISE High School
ARISE High School ensures that our community RISES UP! to become intellectual leaders of the world. ARISE is located in the heart of the Fruitvale neighborhood of Oakland. 95% of our 260 students are low-income students of color. Our students are immersed in a challenging college-prep curriculum that emphasizes knowledge of self, critical consciousness, and performance assessment. The curriculum is enacted in the context of a highly personalized and supportive environment, which provides wrap-around services through our socio-emotional counselors, college advisors, and teachers. We are thrilled that 90% of our graduating seniors have been accepted to a 4-year college!
