  1. Apparently the Melrose Leadership Academy has moved to the former Maxwell Park Elementary school. Not sure what the current status of Sherman is. The school was named for Margaret Sherman, a long-time teacher and later principal in the Oakland schools. http://oaklandwiki.org/Elizabeth_Sherman

    Melrose Leadership Academy is currently not a charter school, they are a public school in OUSD.
