About Us

Greenleaf, a small K-8 school in the heart of East Oakland, opened in 2007 after a design team of educators, parents, and community members spent a year re-envisioning the school’s mission.

Over the first three years, Greenleaf Scholars increased their literacy proficiency from 14% to 51% as measured by the then California State Standards Test (CST) and even more in Math, from 25% to 80%.

Greenleaf soon became a model for teacher leadership, professional learning communities, values-based school culture and data-driven instruction across the district. The school's API, the former standard school ratings, rose from the mid 500's to 821. Currently, our Middle School is ranked 3rd out of 26 middle schools in the district. We were also just recognized as 1 of 13 schools out of 126 for Academic Progress.


Academic excellence is our goal.

Community is our foundation.

Together, we work and live by the Greenleaf principles of learning:

  • Integrity
  • Determination
  • Pride
  • Inquiry
