Our School

Every student is assigned a teacher as an advisor when they enter Unity. For the student’s tenure the teacher-advisor serves as the mentor and advocate.

Our Program

At OUMS our self-discipline principles extend beyond students to include teachers and staff who are also engaged in understanding and taking ownership of their students’ data, and adjusting their instruction accordingly in response.

Our Team

The Oakland Unity Middle School team contains teacher leaders who have worked for OUHS for the past seven years. We are a new school providing a setting of motivation and innovation.
