School Vision and Mission

At Mountain Oaks High School we know that every student is a unique human being with immeasurable value. We understand that each of our students is a leader in that they have something constructive and positive to offer the world.

We encourage leadership in our students by creating opportunities to put their best foot forward, to think positively, to be willing to work hard, and to try something new every day of the year. Through a variety of instruction strategies we offer a way of understanding the world that emphasizes relationships between content areas. 

The geographical location of Mountain Oaks High School is in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, which allows students and staff the unique opportunity to teach and learn the California State High School Standards under thematic foci of interest to students. Academic semesters are devoted to the study of a particular chosen focus as in the building of the Ecotourism website, job exploration and experience, and computer technologies. Each teacher at Mountain Oaks High School is able to (incorporate the chosen focus into academic content and maintain standards set forth by the State.) then guide the academic content to include the semester’s chosen focus. The chosen focus not only centers and grounds curriculum in these thematic ways, but also helps to engage students in post secondary opportunities in areas of interest to them.
