- About Us Head Royce School Mission The mission of The Head-Royce School is to inspire in our students a lifelong love of learning and exuberance for academic excellence, to promote understanding of and respect for the diversity that makes our society strong, and to encourage constructive and responsible citizenship. Founded in 1887, Head-Royce is an independent, college-preparatory, coeducational, non-denominational, K-12 school, which offers a challenging educational program. The School nurtures the development of the whole child through a program that seeks: to develop intellectual abilities such as scholarship and disciplined, critical thinking; to foster in each student integrity, ethical behavior, compassion, and a sense of humor; to promote responsibility and leadership, an appreciation of individual and cultural differences, and a respect for the opinions of others; to nurture aesthetic abilities such as creativity, imagination, musical, and visual talent; and to encourage joyful, healthy living and physical fitness. All members of the Head-Royce community strive to create an educational environment that reflects the School's core values of academic excellence, diversity, and citizenship, one in which each student can thrive. We believe that a program based on these core values will prepare our students to be effective global citizens as they face and embrace the challenges and opportunities of the future.
- Overview THE HEAD-ROYCE SCHOOL The Head-Royce School is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory day school with classes from kindergarten through twelfth grade. The School offers students a challenging program in the liberal arts and sciences in a supportive environment. Founded in 1887 in Berkeley, California as the Anna Head School for Girls, it relocated in 1964 to a spacious campus in Oakland. The Josiah Royce School for Boys opened at an adjacent site in 1971 as a coordinate school. Since 1979 the School has been fully coeducational. The School is committed to a program of excellence, one which provides opportunities for the intellectual and personal development of each student. The School strives to nurture the student's imagination, creativity, and love of learning. As one of the few independent, K-12 schools in the East Bay, Head-Royce seeks to instill in its students a strong sense of community and social responsibility. ACADEMIC PROGRAMS LOWER SCHOOL The academic program provides a solid foundation of skills and concepts in the areas of reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, science, and computer education. The development of strong, independent work habits is stressed. In all curricular areas the concepts introduced at an early level become more complex and detailed as the children's knowledge and reasoning abilities grow. Both standardized testing and informal assessments are used to measure academic progress.
