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 six partner high schools (Castlemont, Coliseum College Prep Academy, LPS Oakland, Madison Park, Oakland High, and Skyline). Our faculty teach NHS courses on-site in these schools, exposing 9th-12th graders to environmental education and immersion in nature.

Spring 2020 Dual Enrollment Courses:

BIOL 60A: Natural History of the Bay Area: The Local Parks, Professor Ben Nelson, LPS Oakland

ENVMT 16: Introduction to Healthy Community Systems, Professor Matthew Linzner, Castlemont High
