Principal - Joy Chua

Welcome to Alameda Adult School!

We are proud to offer classes in English as a Second Language, High School Diploma and High School Equivalency Test Preparation at Chipman and Longfellow Campus; and Family Literacy at Ruby Bridges Elementary. We are also piloting new classes to provide pathways to career, including Early Childhood Development classes with Merritt, and Optometric Assistant Classes with Dr. Jennifer Ong.

This is my seventh year as an administrator of the adult school, and every year I am grateful to be able to serve the most motivated and tenacious students! I look forward to all of our students achievements for the 2018-19 school year. You can witness them too on our Facebook page.
