About » Welcome


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.
