Fremont High School, is an urban public high school located in the Fruitvale District of East Oakland, California. It was formerly a group of smaller high schools located on the same campus and known as Fremont Federation of High Schools. The school's present configuration is that of the "wall to wall" career academies model, consisting of a 9th Grade House which feeds into one of three California Partnership Academies (CPA), specifically the Architecture Academy, Mandela Law & Public Service Academy, and Media Academy.

Part of the Oakland Unified School District, and located at 4610 Foothill Blvd since 1905, the school was split into four smaller autonomous schools in 2003. The four schools were:

  1. College Preparatory and Architecture Academy
  2. Mandela High School
  3. Media College Preparatory High School
  4. Paul Robeson School, Visual and Performing Arts (closed after the 2009-2010 school year).

The three high schools remained and had their own administration up to Spring 2011. They functioned separately, though located on the same campus and used the same library, and well as having common sports teams under the Fremont High School banner.

After Spring 2011, as part of an Oakland Unified School District decision to slowly reverse the small school system, the three remaining schools became less autonomous. The 2011-2012 school year reintroduced a central administration with three separate entities and budgets on campus: Mandela High, Media High, and CPAA. In 2012, the Fremont Federation of High Schools again became Fremont High School, with one single administration.[1]
