I attended Live Oak High School class of 2004. I wasn't popular but i wasn't really bullied. I've seen it done but at least when they where informed of the situation they attempted to handle it. Some family members that i have that attend Ann Sobrato have had now 2 cases of being harassed and bullied on campus. The most current one was out of control and frustrates us all that not one thing took place to make this child feel safe at school. I would give more information but who knows what they would do next to them. PURE AGGRAVATION towards this school.
If Sobrato had the same services and technology available to 504 students our local community colleges have, I believe more students would be accepted into the university system from Sobrato. Don't allow counseling to talk you into taking your student off a 504 or your student won't be eligible for the DSPS services the community colleges offer. Good effort was made on administration's and the Math departments behalf to assist poor math learners, Good ASB,Sports, FFA, and CAL SOAP programs. Overall most of the teachers were responsive. It appears the student body doesn't have much interest in keeping the grounds clean. The campus is worn and tired looking and it's a fairly new school.
Nice facility. School without real leadership, overwhelmed teachers who don't work up to expectations (don't know if there are any expectations and how they are reinforced from the administration). It seems some teachers can do what they want. Principle is invisible. No improvements in the past 6 years. Don't let you fool by all these 5 stars reviews.
I had both of my daughters atttend Sobrato and they both had a wonderful experience. My oldest being in the first class when the school opened. My youngest one just graduated last year. Ann Sobrato is a great school and both administration and staff should be commended to keeping the standards high. Both of our girls are well adjusted and in college now. Thank you Sobrato... We will miss you!!
What a wonderful school. I was once a poor student. I decided to transfer from Live Oak High school due to constant upsets. Every day I passed students Blazing in the parking lot. Although the school has tightened regulations don't regret transferring to Sobrato. My first week at Sobrato I noticed many differences. I had never seen so many smiles from teachers. I also noticed they all seemed to be young. Although this seems funny, as a student i was more motivated to learn from a teacher that not to long ago was in the same position I was in; a high school student... More importantly i was proud to be a Sobrato Bulldog. Before i was simply a Live Oak Acorn seeking a better high school experience. If I was in the position of a parent that had to choose what high school my son/daughter were to attend, i would choose Ann Sobrato High School, with no doubt in my mind.
I feel privileged to work at a school with such a dedicated staff, including an administration that acts on the belief that all students are capable of succeeding given appropriate support. My fellow educators (teachers, librarian, counselors, administrators and support staff) are strongly committed to students and willingly give of their time, energy and other resources to ensure as many students as possible are successful. Our previous principal saw the school through the planning and construction phases and worked hard to ensure the staff comprised highly qualified, deeply dedicated individuals who shared his commitment to students. Our current principal believes in improving student success by having staff examine test results and other school performance data to identify our areas of strength and weakness, and then develop methods of improving our educational program to remedy our areas of weakness. She holds both staff and students to high standards, and our improving Academic Performance Index indicates that her leadership is working. I consider this school to be a great place to teach.
The school is fantastic! The teachers work hard to help you, and you can tell that they really care about your education.
Sobrato is fantastic! We have new supplies, new fresh teachers, tons of activities, and top of the line equipment for just about everything. I love Sobrato!
This is my daughter's second year in high school. I had my daughter in private schools since 1st grade and the Sobrato academic programs, extra curricular activities and sport let me to believe we now have a public school in Morgan Hill that is compatible to private schools or even better. Between the state of art brand new facilities and the personnel, I feel lucky to have chosen Ann Sobrato High School for my kids education. This is an educational entity example we should have in the whole state, not just here in Morgan Hill.
My son has attended two years so far, has had excellent teachers who really know and care about their subject areas and their students. Classes are huge, but he still has been able to get individual care and attention when he needs it. Counselor is very good, especially considering her enormous case load. All staff seem to be very student oriented. Brand new facility; clean, modern, great. Many good extracurricular opportunities available for students who want to pursue them. Good test prep for the AP World History exam.
This is a brand new school that has not yet graduated a class (will do so in 2007). So far it is great.
