Principal's Message

Welcome to Charter School of Morgan Hill.  We are a public K- 8 school.  Strong involvement and dedication from our staff, parents and community enable us to provide a rich foundation for our students to thrive.  This environment allows us to grow well rounded lifelong learners who are prepared to be innovative participants in the community. Our project based learning philosophy gives students opportunities to develop skills that are applicable in the real world. When students are invested participants in their education, they are more engaged.  This method of engagement has earned CSMH the designation as a California Distinguished School. Test scores show that our students are meeting and exceeding standards and although we are proud of their academic achievements, we take just as much pride in our students as individuals and the community that we have at CSMH; a community where each and every individual is known and valued for the unique set of attributes they bring to school with them each day.

About Us

The Charter School of Morgan Hill (CSMH) is the result of the work of a diverse group of educators, parents and community members with a shared vision for an alternative public school with an emphasis on "project based learning, strong family involvement, and community interaction ..." The founders were committed to creating a school that not only provided a rigorous academic program but that also provided a whole child education. The school initially opened its doors in August of 2001 to 167 students.
Today, Charter School of Morgan Hill serves over 600 students in K-8. We are fully accredited by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) and are recognized as a California Distinguished School. We are proud of our academically excellent program that utilizes project based learning as its primary instructional strategy. Our students are involved in a robust enrichment program that includes the arts, physical education, Spanish, nutrition and agriculture.
We have a talented teaching staff that is committed to meeting the individual needs of every child. An extremely dedicated and caring group of adults have created an environment where students feel safe, respected and excited about learning. Our parents and community play an integral role in supporting our program and their high level of involvement contributes to our success.
