About Us

Our Vision

McClymonds High School is a premiere, transformative learning environment, building on the legacy of community activism in West Oakland, and empowering students to personalize their education pathways to become college, career, and community-ready graduates.

Our Mission

At McClymonds High School, students create and implement STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Personalized Pathways in a supportive climate that embrace individuality while fostering respect for others.  By taking ownership of their education, students embark on a journey of self-discovery, become more responsible and accountable so that they graduate college, career, and community ready.

Theory of Action

If we, in partnership with our community, provide access and opportunity for all students to engage in educational experiences that are rigorous and relevant so that they understand the connections to their lives in the present and the future, and provide caring and supportive relationships to develop, implement, and assess their STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) 10-Year Personalized Pathway Plan and celebrate their progress; students will engage more deeply to acquire the knowledge, skills and behaviors needed to make positive contributions to their local and global community and succeed in college and careers of their choice.
