Live Oak School, San Francisco:
ive Oak School is an independent, co-educational day school for students in kindergarten through to 8th grade located in Potrero Hill on the east side of San Francisco. Founded by parents and teachers in 1971, Live Oak draws families from Portrero, Central East, Mission District and other communities throughout the Peninsula. Live Oak is a small school where students and families know each other well. We believe that school is both a place to learn and a place to learn how to learn. We want our students to know themselves and to know how to work with others. We want our students to leave Live Oak with the doors wide open. Our faculty, staff, board and families work together to create a learning environment that is diverse, challenging, nurturing, engaging and inspiring. We believe that the journey is as important as the destination, and at the same time, we are proud that our graduates choose among public, independent and religious high schools.
Live Oak School supports the potential and promise of each student. We provide a strong academic foundation, develop personal confidence and the ability to collaborate with others, inspire students to act with compassion and integrity, and nurture a passion for learning to last a lifetime.
This mission is made real in a rigorous academic environment that embraces each student's learning skills and supports age-appropriate, challenging work through differentiated instructional methods. We value all the contributions our students make: in the classroom, on the stage, in the art studio, on the athletic fields, in their work within the school community and beyond.
At Live Oak School, in addition to core subjects, we emphasize development of positive values and life skills. Inspired by educational theory and rooted in practical application, we foster a learning environment that nurtures, encourages and celebrates each student's exploration and growth. Our graduates leave Live Oak as knowledgeable, articulate human beings, eager and ready for the challenges ahead.
