Tours & Info Nights

Each year the Edna Brewer Middle School Outreach Team ( hosts several Morning Tours and one Evening Informational Event for prospective families to come learn about our high-performing Oakland Public Middle School.  We encourage you to attend both, in order to get a sense of Edna Brewer’s dynamic, inclusive school culture, as well as our outstanding academic and elective programs.

The Morning Tours are led by Edna Brewer parent volunteers who share their first hand knowledge about our school. After touring the campus and visiting classrooms, attendees meet key administrators and a panel of 6th, 7th and 8th grade students who present their perspectives on Edna Brewer and answer attendee questions.

The larger Evening Informational Event allows prospective parents/guardians and students to learn about Edna Brewer a bit more in-depth. Attendees hear from Principal Aubrey Layne and then attend three of several rotating “break-out” sessions held in various classrooms around the school, each focusing on a particular academic subject or elective. These sessions are held by Edna Brewer teachers and administrators and include a short period for Q&A.
