The Right Place at the Right Time
Middle school is a time of tremendous growth and change for students as they begin the transition from childhood to young adulthood. At Live Oak Middle School, we challenge and expect our students to rise to our higher expectations as they develop into well-rounded and responsible young adults. Our mission statement is an ever-present guide in this endeavor:
Live Oak Middle School is a safe, caring place where educators challenge scholars with rigorous curriculum to reach their fullest potential in academics, personal character, and college and career readiness. Furthermore, it is our mission that every Live Oak Scholar becomes a productive citizen of society. Live Oak is the Right Place at the Right Time!
The Home/School Compact
It is important that families and schools work together to help students achieve high academic standards. Through a process that included teachers, families, and students, we agreed upon the following roles and responsibilities that we, as partners, will carry out to support student success in school and life.
