Working at Bay

Located in the Presidio of San Francisco, The Bay School is an independent, college preparatory high school that provides its students with a challenging, innovative curriculum and a collaborative, supportive community.

 

Our staff and faculty members—collectively called “staffulty”—foster and model curiosity, critical thinking, intentionality, good humor, and respect for diversity. They shape our close-knit community, and as co-builders of an innovative high school, contribute to a distinctively positive culture. Bay students display uncommon intellectual engagement and are curious, creative collaborators. The result is a rewarding environment in which to work.
