Oakland Schools Partnership Yields Impressive Results

Intel partnered with McClymonds High School and the Oakland Unified School District in California to develop and improve computer science and engineering courses. Programs include work-based learning, mentoring and internships, education and awareness for parents, and professional development support for teachers. As part of Intel’s five-year, $5 million investment in two OUSD schools, Intel ...helped launch a new engineering pathway program for students an McClymonds, encouraging them to pursue future education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.

In 2018, 31 McClymonds graduating seniors completed the engineering pathway program and headed off to colleges and universities such as the University of Southern California; the University of California, Los Angeles; the University of Nevada; and the University of Hawaii. Their success demonstrates that with support and investment, school districts can dramatically improve educational outcomes and prepare students for success in today’s high-tech workforce.
