About Us


Madison Park Academy strives to offer educational journeys rooted in community school-based efforts. We center humanity and address the whole-child’s needs to nurture a love of learning and prepare our youth for academic and post-secondary success. 


We commit to cultivating an asset-based environment of pride, purpose, possibilities, and perseverance. We equip our students with critical literacy and post-secondary skills to build more equity within their communities.

Who we are

Madison Park Academy serves 656 students in grades 6-12.

Our school campus is located in the Sobrante Park neighborhood of East Oakland. Our middle school has been serving the community since 1958. Our high school is relatively new, with the first senior class graduating in 2017 with a 91% graduation rate (20% higher than the district average).

Our students are a close-knit group that are incredibly resilient, advocate for themselves and others, and have enormous linguistic capital and cultural wealth. 100% of our students are students of color (80% Latino and 15% African American) who receive free and reduced lunch. We are a community school that utilizes restorative practices to support the social-emotional needs of our students.
