Located in the Presidio of San Francisco, The Bay School is an independent, college preparatory high school committed to providing its students with a challenging, innovative curriculum and a collaborative, supportive community. Our collaborative staff and faculty members foster and model curiosity, critical thinking, intentionality, good humor and respect for diversity. Our campus also serves as headquarters for the California Teachers Development Collaborative (CATDC).

The Bay School does not discriminate on the basis of SOGIE (sexual orientation or gender identity expression), race, color, religion, ethnicity, national origin, ancestry, age, or any other characteristic protected by law. We are committed to having a faculty, staff and student body that reflects the diversity of the Bay Area. We hold the highest standards for respectful relationships with peers and students. We strongly encourage those with a demonstrated dedication to social justice, collaboration, innovation and student-centered education to apply. 
Bay's collaborative faculty and staff members shape our close-knit community. Over 80 percent of Bay teachers hold advanced degrees. They value individual learning styles and demonstrate variety, adaptability, and innovation in their work with students. Teachers guide students in developing the habits of mind, knowledge, and skills that will prepare them to thrive in a dynamic world.
