alameda bright coalition

Alameda Bright Coalition (A.B.C.) was formed in 2018, through efforts by Ms. Cline, ASTI Principal Corbally, and FabLab Lead Miguel Vega. This partnership was born out of a desire to provide Ruby STEAM Stars with a solid trajectory through their AUSD career, TK-12 and beyond.

In 2019, Wood Principal Harris joined our coalition to bridge the crucial connection between primary and secondary education. A.B.C. is rooted in its mission to provide ALL of our students with equitable opportunities for academic advancement through the STEAM lens.

The cross-schools collaboration shines best at our school events, during outreach opportunities, and in multi-level student interactions across campuses. We are deeply proud of this one-of-a-kind Alameda partnership!
