Following the closure of Rockridge Elementary School in 1989, the Oakland Unified School District opened Far West High School also an arts magnet school on the campus. In 2011, due to falling enrollment, OUSD closed several schools, including Far West, which was absorbed into nearby Oakland Technical High School.
