Finding a Middle School - K-5 Schools Unite!

Please join us for our 
Middle School Information Night 
on Thursday 10/1 from 6-7:30 pm
for Mills College Children's School & Aurora School

This year, Mills and Aurora are partnering together to put on our annual Middle School Information Night. Though this event benefits graduating 5th grade families, the admissions timeline seems to be getting earlier each year and this event has become essential to 4th grade families as they begin the process of thinking about life after MCCS. We also highly encourage 3rd grade families to attend, and anyone else who wants to learn more about middle schools. 

Theresa Lozac'h of Beyond Quality Educational Consultants (www.theresalozach.com) will give a talk about how to 
determine the right fit for your child, conduct a search and narrow down your choices. She will also include a segment about choosing schools for a child with learning differences, so even if you've come to this talk before, you may this new perspective to be helpful. Afterward there will be a Q&A. 

Childcare/pizza will be provided in the SAC room so that parents can attend this event without their children. 
​Please sign up here by 9/30. 

Here are driving directions to the school:

Our address is 5000 MacArthur Blvd, Oakland, CA 94613

You can also click the campus map to see how to get to the Children's School (#48).

At the front gate, stop and ask for a day pass to visit the Children's School. They can also give you a map and directions.

Once inside the gate, go straight on Richards Rd until it dead ends.

Turn right on Kapiolani Rd and follow that until it reaches the Children's School on the left.

You may park in the lot above to your right, walk down the steps to the the office with the water fountain out front, then look for signs to our meeting location. 

If you can't find parking up top, follow Kapiolani down around the pond where it turns into Wetmore and you'll see another parking lot to your right. Walk up the steps and look for signs to our meeting location.
