Websites built in the School Website module have their own search tool, but the functionality is limited. There is a large voting pool on the Ideas Community, requesting that the front end search results should include content types regardless what page they are on.

Some schools create Google Search Bar to use on their front end website instead.

The code goes into an Embed widget and is typically put in the header or footer of the Master Layout.
