Live Oak School, a K-8 independent school in the heart of urban San Francisco, believes that the best learning happens when students are actively engaged in the process—thinking deeply, exploring ideas, and trying on strategies for solving problems. The school’s approach to teaching and learning is deeply rooted in progressive tradition and informed by contemporary research. Live Oak anchors its instructional program around the students as individual learners, determined to prepare them for the opportunities that will define the lives of graduates in the twenty-first century.
As the current assistant head of school, who has served the duties of a lower school head, departs after a successful nine-year tenure to become a head of school on the East coast this July, Live Oak will welcome a new leader for a division that has nearly doubled in size over the last several years. This exciting growth period included campus and program expansions. As a result, the incoming lower school head will have a larger and even more diverse student and professional community to lead. The lower school head reports to the head of school and serves on the leadership team.
