Sankofa United Elementary School is an Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) school that will be welcoming Kindergarten - 5th grade students in 2020-21. The school is the result of a merger of two OUSD schools, Henry J. Kaiser Elementary and Sankofa Academy, on the Sankofa site.

Our Mission

At Sankofa United Elementary School all students engage in a rigorous academic program, enriched with music and art. We meet students where they are and position them to excel. Through the development of social-emotional skills, students learn to be in positive, respectful relationships that celebrate our similarities and our differences. We are creating a learning environment that is welcoming and reflective of all students’ and families’ abilities, cultures, and identities.

Our Vision

The vision of Sankofa United Elementary School is to nurture well-rounded people who are advocates for themselves and their learning. The Sankofa United community reflects the diversity of Oakland. Our students understand they are connected to and feel responsible for their community, and they know they are part of something bigger than themselves.
