El Toro Elementary was named after a local geographical feature of the area, the 1,403 foot El Toro mountain to the west. The mountain is an important part of Morgan Hill's history; the well-known pioneer settler Martin Murphy, Sr. came to live near this mountain in 1844 and it was his granddaughter Diana who married Hiram Morgan Hill. El Toro Elementary School was formally opened in 1990 in portables, with Kindergarten through Third Grade classes. The school buildings were completed for the 1993-1994 school year and all classes were moved out of the portables.
Today El Toro Health Science Academy is host to SDC pre-school, full and half year transitional kindergarten, along with, kindergarten through fifth grade classes. El Toro HSA has full time Science, Reading, & Resource teachers as well as a part time PE coach.
