The Face of Private High School

Head-Royce School


As one of the East Bay’s distinguished independent high schools, Head-Royce embodies the three pillars of its mission: scholarship, diversity, and citizenship. “We provide our students with academic rigor through a collaborative college preparatory curriculum in tandem with service learning, summer exploration, and a global education path introducing students to different cultures through study-abroad programs and exploring our own communities,” said Carl Thiermann, Upper School Head. “Our dedicated Upper School faculty fosters deep connections with students, helping them grow and develop with a sense of purpose and gratitude.”
