Built in 1958, the Heights Elementary School is the largest and oldest of Oakland's elementary schools.
Heights is proud of their strong home/school partnership - the backbone of a successful school and well-balanced students. Our PTO works with our staff to provide enrichment programs based on collaboratively determined needs and interests. Our parents are intent on exposing our children to diverse experiences in music, art, and the cultural arts. To this end, during the school year the PTO provides an eclectic array of special cultural arts programs for the children. In addition, some of the "for fun" experiences that our PTO sponsors for children and parents include our annual Simple Supper, a "student fun evening" and our famous Heights Rock Cafe. These special events are always well attended by our school community.
