Prospective parents, guardians and students are welcome to join us for an Evening Informational Meeting at Edna Brewer Middle School. You will learn about the academic and extracurricular programs that make our middle school a top choice for Oakland families.
Following a welcome by our award-winning Panther musicians, you will hear from Brewer Principal Aubrey Layne, key academic faculty and extracurricular program staff. Also, a panel of students from grades 6-8 will present their perspectives, insights and experiences. Attendees will have opportunities to ask questions of both staff and students – prospective students considering Brewer are encouraged to ask questions.
This is a popular event, so register early. Please be sure to RSVP for the total number in your group.
We look forward to meeting you!
FAQs (please read before contacting us)
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is parking on the streets surrounding the school, but you should plan on needing 15 minutes to find parking and getting to the entry of the school. Due to the number of families attending this event, you may need to park several blocks away on the streets surrounding the school (e.g., E. 38th St. or Excelsior Ave.).
AC Transit line 18 stops right by the school, on Park Blvd at E. 38th St.
Where do I go when I get to the school?
Please enter the school through the left set of doors as you face the school on 13th Ave. (this is the entry closest to E. 38th St.). Go down the stairs, and check-in will be in the hallway between the music room and the cafeteria.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No -- we will have a check-in list when you arrive.
Are there other options to learn about the school?
Yes -- there are a series of morning tour events taking place from Oct - Jan (one tour each month). Click here to sign up for a morning tour.
