We believe it takes our entire community to educate our children. We couldn't do what we do without the support of our families.

So many students we see in Oakland seem to have little insight into the world around them, and that is not the case for the students at NOCCS. We love and wholeheartedly support our community.

NOCCS was founded by parents and continues to actively engage with all families around the life of the school. The Family Teacher Organization (FTO) is a vital part of that work. It meets monthly and the leadership can be reached anytime at

NOCCS is an intentionally diverse community. The demographics of the NOCCS student body reflect the beautiful variety of cultures, races, and experiences that make up Oakland. Making sure that every family and student feels that NOCCS is their school is part of the important work we do at NOCCS. Realizing that different communities sometimes have different concerns, and want a space to voice those concerns, NOCCS created the Family Advisory Councils. Currently, there is an African American, Latinx, and LGBT Family Advisory Council. These councils inform programming for students and outreach to families.

A crucial part of the work of being an intentionally diverse (sometimes called Diverse by Design) school is confronting the legacy and continuing reality of racism in our country, city, and immediate communities. This work is not easy, and we all learn how to interrupt racist thoughts, actions, and systems when we can learn from each other. In order to better support one another in this work, NOCCS is creating a Raising Anti-Racist Children at NOCCS Working Group. This group will include, but not be limited to, readings, discussion, and outside facilitation around taking an anti-racist stance as educators and caregivers. The working group is open to ALL FAMILIES, of any racial identity who are interested in engaging on this important topic.


Here at NOCCS, we value the diversity and experiences that each student and family brings to our community. That's why we work together to ensure the safety and well-being of every student, recognize and celebrate each other's culture, and work together with our families to provide an inclusive environment for everyone.
