' School Within a School'proves relevant
"School Within A School," an alternative to
"the system," completed its first year of
existence. ln addition to the normal class
offerings, many extra curricular activities
were scheduled. Guest speakers from all
over the country came, movies were
presented, and field trips to varied points
around the Bay all added to the school's
ability to reach students.
Before school started, some of the students
and teachers got together for a camp-out at
Kerby Cove. The purpose of the trip was to
develop good teacher-student relationships,
a more relaxed atmosphere.

Organized to provide students with the
opportunity for complete self-scheduling, the
"Mill" was the first system of its kind to be
used in Oakland. The "Mill" was formed to
let students set up. programs to fit their
various needs. The purpose was to attempt
to stabilize class enrollment earlier, which
would eliminate many program changes. The
"lVlill" decreased the number of transfers
and increased the number of satisfied
students throughout the year.
Students gather outside the auditorium before going
through the "lVlill" to self-schedule.
At "Mill" conflict station, social science teacher Mr.
Maurice Besse and Principal David Swanson aid Dietra
Robinson, Jim Harper, Louis Kopecky, Nancy Peshon,
and Sally Lowell.
