As a school and a community, Yu Ming Charter School continues to expand and flourish every year. To support this growth, our school campus now includes two neighboring sites in North Oakland. For the current school year, classrooms for grades K-2 are located at 1086 Alcatraz Avenue. Grade 3 and 4 classrooms are situated just one short block away at 6232 Herzog Street. Both buildings provide classrooms with plenty of natural light and access to outdoor space. Administrative functions take place at both locations.

The Yu Ming campus includes several spaces to meet students’ needs for outdoor play and learning. Outdoor facilities include a sizable play structure, blacktop recreation areas, a school garden, and outdoor dining and instructional space.
Situated near the borders of Oakland, Berkeley and Emeryville, Yu Ming’s neighborhood offers many resources for students and their families: cafés, a public library, playgrounds, restaurants, other schools and more. Read about them here.
