Live Oak High School is a comprehensive high school in the Morgan Hill Unified School District (MHUSD), serving students in grades nine through twelve. Live Oak is located in Morgan Hill, in the southern part of Santa Clara County, a fast growing suburban area that has managed to retain the aura of a small town. Students reside in the cities of Morgan Hill and San Jose, as well as the unincorporated areas of San Martin and the Coyote Valley. (MHUSD spans the second largest geographic area of California school districts.) The student population reflects the rich ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of the community.
Live Oak recently celebrated its 100th anniversary! The original Live Oak High School was located at the current site of Britton Middle School in Morgan Hill . Live Oak has undergone significant remodeling and technology infrastructure upgrades over the past few years, including a new theater and amphitheater area, new locker rooms, replacement of the school’s front façade, and a new digital marquee.
It is the Vision of Live Oak High School to graduate students who demonstrate College and Career readiness to become productive workers and contributing global citizens. Our students will be ethical, critical, independent thinkers, informative navigators, and lifelong learners in order to be leaders and valuable participants in the 21st century.
The Mission of Live Oak High School is to provide a challenging, high quality educational environment. We are committed to equity and success for all students. For this purpose, all teachers will incorporate real life tasks, differentiated instruction, varied modalities, and appropriate technology to extend learning beyond the school environment. This community of learning will encourage all students to identify their unique abilities and talents to develop their college and career readiness.
