Do you have any proof to back this stat up? I'm serious, do you? It's something I need to see proof of. I have children and this is important. mod cut

If this is so important to you and you’re being serious, here’s the link to Head-Royce’s financial assistance information: Head-Royce: Financial Aid . Give them a call. I actually am a parent that is considering Oakland as an option so I’m not going to make statements on here that are both provocative and defensive as you have done and actually expect helpful information.

We’re not considering Head Royce but we're considering a combination of parochial and public schools if we move to Oakland. As jade stated earlier there are plenty of private schools for <10k and most if not all of the Oakland Catholic schools offer discounted sibling rates making it fairly affordable IMO. Obviously, as someone who’d rather take advantage of the public school system, I’m elated that OUSD is improving and I’m sure will continue to do so. Way to go, Oakland.

You have been fact checked about this already.

Average Family Income, Husband and Wife BOTH work, 2011 Census Estimate:
Oakland, CA $139,474

Average Household Income by Quintiles, 2011 Census Estimate
Oakland, CA
Top 5 % $386,088
Top 20% $209,700
Top 40% $86,745

Furthermore, as I stated to you in another thread just last month, you should hop on the next plane to Miami and set up a soup kitchen there if you think Oakland has income disparity problems:

Median Household Income, 2011
Oakland, CA $50,500
New York, NY $49,461
Boston, MA $49,081
Portland, OR $47,033
Chicago, IL $43,628
Baltimore, MD $38,721
Miami, FL $28,536
Cleveland, OH $25,371

The Oakland 'Metro' is Alameda and Contra Costa County and is known as the Oakland-Fremont-Hayward, CA Metro Division. San Francisco is SF, Marin and San Mateo and LA is LA County.

Point being: The Oakland METRO thrashes the LA and SF METROS when it comes to the number of the highest scoring high schools. Massive fail.

And as far as the city of Oakland compared to other cities in Oakland's population range:

2012 Public Schools with a API of 900+

Sacramento Unified: 4
Elementary: 3
Middle: 0
High: 1

Fresno Unified: 5
Elementary: 2
Middle: 1
High: 2

Long Beach Unified: 6
Elementary: 4
Middle: 1
High: 1

Oakland Unified: 14
Elementary: 9
Middle: 3
High: 2


Like I said Goldstein, you've already been fact checked about this just a month ago.

Complete cherry pick, to say Oakland thrashes LA is laughable at best.

Learn the meaning of the word 'metro' and then come back to me. In the meantime *yawns*

I dont say things I cant back up. If you werent aware before, consider yourself informed:

High Schools API 900+, 2012
NON Charter, NON Magnet schools in BOLD RED

Oakland-Fremont-Hayward, CA Metropolitan Division: 10 schools
Oakland Charter High School 956
Mission San Jose High School 951
Miramonte High School 944
Dougherty Valley High School 937
American Indian Public High School 928
Campolindo High School 922
Amador Valley High School 920
Piedmont High School 916
Acalanes High School 911
Monte Vista High School 903

Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale, CA Metropolitan Division: 16 schools
Gretchen Whitney High School 995
California Academy of Math & Science 975
Academy for Enriched Studies 964
SOAR High 945
La Canada High 942
San Marino High School 940
Academy of the Canyons 937
Harbor Teacher Prep Academy 932
Anderson Clark Magnet High 920
Citizens of the World Charter 916
Mira Costa High School 913
Frank Lanterman High School 911
Albert Einstein Academy for Letters 910
Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies 907
Palos Verdes Peninsula High School 907
Magnolia Science Academy 906

Los Angeles with 10 Million people only scrounges up 4 normal, non-magnet, non charter schools with an API of 900+ whereas the East Bay(or shall I say the MIGHTY East Bay) with 2.5 Million people DOUBLES that number of LA County.

So either our normal kids are smarter than yours or your 'smart' kids need extra attention to perform well. Not making any judgements but the numbers speak for themselves.

The immediate Oakland Area including the cities that surround it tend to be very highly educated places and that appears to contradict the stereotyping by many SoCal forumers who for some reason have convinced themselves that Oakland is supposed be 1980s Compton North, which is the argument we've heard over and over, but the demographics of this city really invalidate any such comparisons.

Easi Analytics, Zip Codes 2010 Census by % of Adults with a Bachelor Degree or Higher:

50.0% or higher in BOLD RED

Oakland, CA
94661 82.9%
94618 80.8%
94611 71.1%
94610 65.4%
94609 50.1%
94602 46.9%
94608 45.4%
94619 40.9%
94612 33.9%
94607 29.8%
94605 28.7%
94606 24.7%
94624 14.0%
94601 13.1%
94603 8.9%
94621 7.1%

Compton, CA
90220 10.1%
90221 5.1%

We can even look at some nicer SoCal towns to see that their best can't match Oakland's best as far as educational attainment:

Mission Viejo, CA
92692 48.8%
92691 41.0%

Beverly Hills, CA
90212 67.4%
90210 62.3%
90211 51.8%
