High School Partnership



Our High School Initiative: Dual Enrollment

In order to find the next generation of Merritt students, we have established dual enrollment with five partner high schools (Castlemont, Coliseum College Prep Academy, LPS Oakland, Madison Park, and Oakland High). Our faculty teach NHS courses on-site in these schools, exposing 9th-12th graders to environmental education and immersion in nature.

Spring 2019 Dual Enrollment Courses:

BIOL 61E: Natural History of the Tidepools of the Greater Bay Area, Professor Analisa Brown, LPS Oakland

ENVMT 3: Social Issues in Agriculture, Professor Matthew Linzner, Castlemont High

ENVMT 8: Introduction to Outdoor Education, Professor Grey Kolevzon, Coliseum College Prep Academy

ENVMT 16: Introduction to Healthy Community Systems, Professors Beth Teper, Nikki Jaramillo, and David Ralston, Madison Park Academy
