    "Our second child will graduate from Live Oak next year. Both attended from Kindergarten on. A few things I think any parent can appreciate about Live Oak regardless of philosophical leanings are: 1) the absence of computers and the discouragement of media consumption is a huge bonus for the kids and parents. It essentially preserves their imaginations and allows the school to help students grow their will power. 2) the teachers are thoroughly encouraged to get to know their students individually to a degree not found in crowded public schools. 3) the teachers are committed to personal and professional development which keeps them fresh and engaged. 4) the parent body is highly active and incredibly generous with their time and (as they can) their money. 5) if you have the good fortune to find a more intelligent, compassionate, and well respected director than Matthew Morgan, follow him/her. We are lucky we have him."

    "Robust, sought-after school. Champion teachers, so dedicated they continue outside teacher trainings on top of their load and love it. Several just completed a "Making Math Real" teacher training. Google it. The key to success in the core subjects is the learning is PROCESS BASED; low test scores in the lower grades shoot up as your child matures. With the "teach to the test" strategy, you fill children's brains with information they regurgitate, then forget. Here, teachers know test results improve in upper grades. Credo High School's test scores were 2nd highest in the county! WHY? Imagine a learning environment where stress is minimal and real learning is maximized because you are developmentally ready for the concepts, and the teacher has studied your developmental level so well. The students are appreciated for who they are. They are not a number. They are learning compassion and the Golden Rule in every grade. They have the capability to do this because the learning environment is so pleasant and stimulating. They develop lifelong connections and meaningful relationships with their peers. Fabulous specialty teachers in Spanish, Games, Strings, and Choir."

    "Live Oak has been a huge blessing in our lives. Our children were allowed to develop at their own pace, without pressure. They are both excellent students, and amazing readers. Attention is paid to the whole child, the physical and emotional as well as the intellectual, leading to well rounded children. I have a total administrator crush on Matthew Morgan and have no idea how he does everything he does so well, especially communicating. If you are dreaming about a magical educational experience, a school that values your child's unique qualities, are not tied to commercialism, and are willing to wait for academics (they really do come!) Live Oak may be the school for your family."

    "Live Oak has a strong community of parents which makes it a great place to find connection. The school has committed teachers who infuse the academics and the arts which creates a well balanced education for the children. A lot of the programs that are missing from public education are in place at Live Oak. They teach music, spanish, handwork/art and movement. The children keep the same teacher for several years. I find that my children's teachers really know who they are and how to teach to both their strengths and challenges. My kids have been at this school for the last 7 years and it has grown and changed for the best. I love Live Oak!"

    "Live oak is a great school, and a great community. the teachers are really good and so is the principal and the leadership. Any school that has to do so much on their own, including raising funds, will have to have some struggles, but that is of course to be expected. i therefore gave 4 stars, but really would like to give 4 and a half. I think what they are doing in this school is wonderful, and my kids are having a great and very supportive experience."
