Our Program

Our story

Silver Oak provides a college preparatory education
based on the Montessori principles of individualized mastery
learning and student participation in the construction of knowledge.

Silver Oak High School is guided by its vision to create a “community” learning environment where students thrive. Our Faculty guide students through the Common Core standards and A-G Requirements, set forth by the State of California. They simultaneously ignite within the students the spark of creativity, problem-solving, and responsibility, which supports them throughout their lives. By consistently demonstrating an atmosphere of inclusion, acceptance, respect and trust, the Faculty serve as examples and role models. They guide students in their pursuit of knowledge, their acceptance of diversity and their responsibility for their community and its environment.

Silver Oak opened its doors in August 2013 with great enthusiasm and hope for a new type of high school experience.  Now we are proud to tell our story of community, success and innovation. At Silver Oak each student has access to college-prep material, classes and instruction. We celebrate the differences in our students as we watch them grow and achieve their fullest potential. Here at Silver Oak we are incredibly fortunate to have such exceptional students and families who believe in and support our mission and values. 

“The future of our economy, the strength of our democracy, and perhaps even the health of the planet’s ecosystems depend on educating future generations in ways very different from how many of us were schooled.”
– Tony Wagner, Co-Director of the Change Leadership Group at the Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2007

Silver Oak is the best school I ever attended. The classes are small and the teachers really care about me. They support us, work to understand our needs and inspire us to be excellent learners. They change our lives forever! — Jon Cardoza
