A bit about Shoreline
In the heart of Live Oak in Santa Cruz County, Shoreline Middle School serves 600 students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades. The average experience of our credentialed teaching staff exceeds the state median, validated by parent enthusiasm for the quality of the learning experience. With a diverse student body, the teachers and staff focus on teaching the 21st century skills needed to succeed in high school, college and beyond.
Shoreline is a digital destination.
Focused on using technology to support learning, we have Promethean Boards in every classroom so teachers can quickly include real world examples to make learning a rich experience. With just a click, they can show the intricacies of a microorganism, the faces of another culture or the devastation of the Sendai tsunami.
We have many special programs that encourage students to explore and develop their interests to supplement strong language, math and science curriculums. About 35% of the students participate in instrumental music while others learn art, video production, computer science and languages. We also offer a student leadership program based on teaching leadership skills including civic service.
A passion for learning, the center of excitement.
Logistically, our campus revolves around the student quad that centralizes student activities and optimizes supervision. Shoreline has twenty-four regular classrooms, and a specially designed art room, music room and computer lab. Our student store is just around the corner from the cafeteria and outdoor amphitheater that seats 450 students. The physical education facility contains two large locker rooms, a circuit training room and a large multi-use gymnasium.
We offer tours to interested families. Please contact our office to make arrangements.

On Monday, March 7th, high school counselors and student leaders will be on campus to share information about the different high schools. Students will be sent home with a registration packet. Please ask your child to see this important material. On Thursday, March 10th, both Soquel High and Harbor High will hold a parent night, at the high school from 6:30-8:00. At this event, parents will be able to meet their child’s counselor and drop off their registration information. Then, on Monday, March 14th, counselors will be visiting Shoreline a second time to meet with students individually and place them in Freshman classes. If you have questions about any of these events, please call the Counseling Office at your student’s destination high school.
