Head-Royce is a grades K-12, coed, independent, day school situation in the Oakland hills. Total enrollment is 900 students.
The mission of the Head-Royce School is to inspire in our students a lifelong love of learning and pursuit of academic excellence, to promote understanding of and respect for the diversity that makes our society strong, and to encourage constructive and responsible global citizenship.
The remarkable and innovative thinking launched by Anna Head over 130 years ago, remains a source of pride and is the core of Head-Royce School today. We transformed into an independent, co-educational, K-12 school in the 1970s, and that spirit of inquiry and innovation remains infused in our culture. If you visit our campus you will see this dynamic and vibrant learning center in action. From innovation centers, internships, and integrated technology, to life skills classes, service learning, cross-divisional buddies, and small advising groups, we are equally dedicated to educational excellence and social-emotional learning.
At our heart, we are a community of passionate educators and learners, all sharing a deep commitment to creating lifelong learners who will be prepared to lead with joy and compassion. Our faculty is world-class, bringing unique perspectives from a wide range of experiences. Their diversity of thought, coupled with their subject-matter mastery, positions them to provide transformative experiences to every student across our K-12 setting. Our families come to us from a variety of backgrounds and cultures and we are proud to reflect the fabric of the Bay Area.
We enroll a diverse student body of approximately 900 talented and ambitious learners. Our admissions are open to all students regardless of race, color, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, nationality, or ethnic origin.
We invite you to explore how Head-Royce uniquely serves Bay Area families seeking a rigorous and inspired academic experience in a diverse and inclusive setting. Nestled in a wooded canyon in the Oakland hills, our campus environment is a safe and inviting space well-suited for intellectual adventure and self-discovery.
