I have really enjoyed having my kids here. The various booster groups seem to be key to getting the extras at the school. We just got a great sign at the front of the school that took a few years to fundraiser for but glad it is in. My kids are involved in the Ag program and Athletics. Coming from SJ, I am glad my kids have lots to offer them. I will stay involved as there seems to be good things happening. Three more years to go!

We have had 3 children at LO and it has been a great school for our kids. Parent participation has been good and they offer lots of programs for the kids. We help at the school so see first hand what is going on. Go Live Oak Acorns!

Tremendous parent involvement at all levels. Relatively high number of extra curriculars considering there are only 1100 in the students body. Great selection of AP classes.

The assertion that parent participation is the 'key' to obtaining a satisfactory education at Live Oak is an interesting perspective. If by participation we mean outright homeschooling replacing rather than complementing that which is supplied at Live Oak, I'd agree. It was a surreal experience to be informed by one presumably well-meaning teacher at a back to school night early in the year that throughout the upcoming semester, time would be dedicated to learning vocabulary words necessary to 'ensure that your child need not take remedial classes when they attend college, which will save you money.' I don't know what to be disgusted by more, that rather than simply assigning more challenging material to read, teachers would resort to a learning device more appropriate for the fourth grade than a high school, or that I should feel relieved that my wallet is just a little safer.

I agree with the last review. Parent participation is key. Parents help and volunteer when they are in elementary school and disappear in the upper grades which their child has the most obstacles. PARENTS help, donate, and volunteer. Our kids are worth it.

Like anything you get out of it what you put into it. Parent participation in any program your children are involved in is essential. Parents and students who do not put forth the effort should rethink blaming anyone other than themselves. My child has had a good education at Live Oak and when talking to other parents of other schools they all have their issues, but being an active parent makes the difference. Parents are there children's lifelong teachers.

The school provides excellent opportunities for all levels of abilities. Students are challenged and rewarded for accomplishments. AP programs are especially well managed. Students needing additional assistance do not lose out at the school. Teachers take responsibility for the success of the students and contact parents with concerns. A super learning environment.

Teachers here expect students to be disinterested in the subject material and education in general, and it shows, judging by the heaping of juvenile 'extra credit' assignments. Irredeemably awful and a complete waste.

Disappointing. Many of the students appear to be disinterested in the classroom work and are disruptive. Quality of teachers appears inconsistent. The buildings are in poor repair. The sports programs appear to be good.

Posted July 6, 2006

The academic programs are all offered but the curriculum is a joke. Most classes are busywork and few encourage real thinking and a challenge. Parents don't really get invovled, unless its to make sure their child gets in the right classes, since the counselors are hard to approach. There isn't a lot of money going into extra-curriculars, like sports, so a lot of sports have to always to do fundraising and charge hefty athlete fees.

Parent involvement only encouraged by other parents not staff. Overall experience: less than expected.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 24, 2005

Overall leadership is more focussed on getting by and activites verses really challenging students to excel and getting the school among the elite schools in California. Principal not aggressive in ensuring resources are adequate and up to standards for students and teachers to optimize their educational experience. Needs to raise the bar higher, challenge the staff and students more...

Live Oak HS has a variety of programs available however I feel that the teacher involvement with the students outside of the programs is minimal. Parents are not regularly encouraged to be involved. And most of the school programs are underfunded requiring fundraising programs for most middle and low income families to participate.

Live Oak now has grades 9-12. They have an excellent independant studies program, also.

I too am a former student, and I am now attending a junior college in san jose. Overall live oak is a great school, and they are now making many different changes, which is great! My brother goes there and he likes it.


Posted April 29, 2003

Im not a parent Im a student or ex-student. I have now moved to Livermore CA. I would just like to say that Live Oak was awesome and I got to know so many amazing people and I am going to truly miss it.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
