Designed by locally prominent architect, John J. Donovan, Oakland Technical High School opened in 1915, replacing a technical high school that had been near downtown Oakland. Through the efforts of students, faculty, alumni and members of the community, the Oakland Unified School District s plan to demolish the school in the 1970s was aborted in favor of renovation and seismic upgrades. Oakland Technical High School was designated a City of Oakland Landmark in 1985.
