At Live Oak School we understand that the best learning happens when students are actively engaged in the process—thinking deeply, exploring ideas, and solving problems. Our approach is deeply rooted in the progressive tradition, centered on supporting our students in knowing themselves well. Understanding their own identities fosters an appreciation for the diversity they see in others, building the foundation to be changemakers in the world.
Our students provide a daily reminder of our mission to support their potential and promise. We believe that the teacher’s role is to cultivate a stimulating and supportive learning environment in which students can construct their own knowledge. Each member of our school community brings a wealth of experiences, backgrounds, talents, abilities, and interests to school each day. Embracing this diversity, our faculty designs a rich and challenging academic program that is relevant and responsive to each student.
