ARISE High School, a new Oakland charter school, opened its doors in August, 2007, serving 110 9th and 10th graders. The result of a unique partnership with the Mills College School of Education, the Mills College TRIO Programs, Oakland Community Organizations and the Coalition of Essential Schools, ARISE’s focus is on preparing students from low income families to be the first in their families to attend college.
A percentage of the bar sales will be donated to ARISE High School. Drink to donate will help ARISE’s mission: to empower students with the skills and knowledge to pursue higher education and become leaders in the world. ARISE High School will also provide an environment for training educators to become leaders in secondary school reform.
Drop by for a drink and please invite your friends and family. Support Oakland’s future.
