About Us

Melrose Leadership Academy is an OUSD public school serving TK-8th grade students in Oakland. We are a renowned dual-language (Spanish and English) school with project-based learning.

Our Vision

The vision of Melrose Leadership Academy is to partner with families, students and the community to create an environment that enables students to be bilingual, creative, thoughtful, self-motivated learners. We will nurture a culture of mutual respect and multiculturalism, where dialogue among students and adults is central to learning. 

Melrose Leadership Academy will be a place where students exercise their curiosity and voice, make meaningful choices, and challenge themselves and each other academically and where students challenge themselves to develop a sense of responsibility to transform our school, community and world.
