OMI was founded in 2001 after a hard-fought two-year campaign led by then Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown. We are the first public military school and the first school sponsored by the National Guard. OMI serves students from 6th to 12th grade.
Due to the extremely high demand, we are trending to have over 600 applications for only 167 spots. This will like result in us hosting another lottery in March 2021.
