The Community School for Creative Education partners with families and communities to provide a rigorous college-preparatory program integrated into a culturally rich, arts-infused, highly personalized curriculum inspired by Waldorf education for the diverse students of Oakland to promote equity and prepare culturally competent, well-rounded, lifelong learners to lead, contribute to, and successfully participate in our rapidly changing multicultural society.


The Community School for Creative Education envisions a future in which all children have access to quality education; all children experience success in community and career; and youth voices contribute in valued and meaningful ways to the success of a thriving, equitable, and multicultural society. 

Principal Monique Brinson and Founder and Executive Director Dr. Ida Oberman welcome you to our Community School for Creative Education as the country's first urban public Waldorf school!  ~ See them here holding the school's charter, which guides our work.
