Magazine & Annual Report

The mission of Head-Royce School is to inspire in our students a lifelong love of learning and pursuit of academic excellence, to promote understanding of and respect for diversity that makes our society strong, and to encourage active and responsible global citizenship. Founded in 1887, Head-Royce is an independent, non-denominational, coeducational, college-preparatory, K–12 school, which offers a challenging educational program to educate the whole child. The school nurtures the development of each individual student through a program that seeks: » to develop intellectual abilities such as scholarship and disciplined, critical thinking; » to foster in each student respect, 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; a love of nature; 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, and 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 the opportunities of the future.

Community is a word we use often at Head-Royce. Our students comprise a network of learners. We strive to be a community that reflects the school’s core values of academic excellence, diversity and citizenship. As a group, we appreciate individual and cultural differences and respect the opinions of others. We are a community that is self-reflective and ever changing. And we are a community within others—a group of currently enrolled families within a larger body of alumni and their families within the City of Oakland. Head-Royce recently published its first Community Impact Report. In it we paint the picture of the farreaching effects that we have not only on our students, but also on the Oakland youth that we educate through our Heads Up and Summer Enrichment programs; the dozens of local organizations and institutions that our students support through community service; the individuals that Head-Royce employs; and the Oakland businesses that we patronize. This magazine incorporates and expands on the information in that report, which can be viewed in its original form on our website. In this Annual Report, our community celebrates another record-breaking year of philanthropy by our parents, alumni, trustees, faculty, grandparents and friends. In 2012–13, we raised $1,311,061 for our

Annual Fund, a milestone that reflects a 6% increase in donations from 2011–12, which was also a recordbreaking year. We are deeply grateful to you, our donors, for believing in and supporting our mission, which is the heart of our school community.

Robert A. Lake

head of school

Looking ahead, Head-Royce will continue to evolve as we develop our Master Plan, with the ultimate goal of strengthening our position as a top-ranked national K–12 school and an important contributor to our local community. We could not move forward with such confidence without your past and continuing support. Thank you.

We created this Community Impact Report to demonstrate that we are not just a school with an Oakland address. Since 1964 we have made meaningful and positive contributions to our community. Many of our families come from Oakland. We live here. We work here. We shop here. We root for our local teams. And we raise our families here. Head-Royce is much more than just a school. We are an extension of the community, a vibrant member of the City of Oakland and a critical part of the Bay Area.

“I learned how to connect with kids more and make them understand what you’re trying to say while still maintaining your essence of responsibility. When you’re a counselor you’re looking after the kids and parents trust you so it’s important to stay responsible. But then again, if you’re too strict or too serious, the kids go back to parents and say ‘class with Speedy today was so boring!’ So you try to find a balance.” Chris B. ’15 (aka “Speedy”) Summer Enrichment Program counselor

“What I enjoyed most about working with the Summer Program this summer as a counselor was definitely the variety of personalities, including both counselors and campers, that were brought into one place with the common goal of having as much fun as possible. And when all these animated people who would otherwise have distant lives come together, everybody is better for it, having made connections they would never had made.” Chris W. ’15 Summer Enrichment Program counselor

Diversity At Head-Royce, we pride ourselves on developing successful leaders for tomorrow and serving the City of Oakland and the East Bay. We believe that a school community rich in diversity provides the greatest opportunity for students to learn life’s lessons. Our academic program promotes the study and appreciation of all forms of diversity, including race, culture, religion, socio-economic, family structure, learning differences, disabilities, gender and sexual orientation. Our commitment to diversity extends throughout all aspects of the school— academic curriculum, hiring practices, extra-curricular activities and financial aid.

Inclusive Our students and families represent the full spectrum of genders, sexualities and family structures; all are welcome at Head-Royce.

We’re here to support Asian students in expressing their individuality and celebrating their heritages. We also want to provide more resources for new families acclimating to the Head-Royce culture. Ultimately, we want to help our kids to become leaders who can speak for the whole community, not just for a particular affinity group.” Margaret Yee, Upper School (English) Asian Parents Network Leader, Asia Club Advisor

Nia—A Part of HRS’ Diverse Fabric Nia is the Swahili word for “purpose.” The school’s Nia group brings a prominent African American speaker to the Head-Royce campus each year as well as established the Nia Scholarship Fund in 2003 to provide financial support a student of color. “Yes, diversity means including and celebrating all races, creeds and colors. However, diversity comes with work, education and effort. Diversity is part of the institutional fabric of Head-Royce. One part of that fabric is Nia which celebrates African Americans and addresses issues that impact our community. Working with Nia has been a cornerstone of our experience at Head-Royce. Nia has made a significant difference. It makes a difference to have an endowed scholarship to support students of color. It makes a difference to have a Speaker of Color Series that remembers the history and celebrates past and current African Americans. It makes a difference to educate and inform all people about the issues and challenges that African Americans face. For our family, it has been important to be in an educational environment that supports and uplifts our children and allows us to openly share our diversity. We are willing to work hard to make sure that we impact the future diversity of Head-Royce and make a difference for other African American students and families. We are part of the fabric of Head-Royce.” Vangeria Harvey, Parent

“The financial aid program at HeadRoyce School has more than quadrupled since 1978. With this growth has come a tremendous increase in socioeconomic, racial and ethnic diversity at the school. We celebrate that our students engage with a wide range of friends and share interesting lessons in diverse classrooms because the school has made access and inclusion a priority. How fortunate we all are that our mission of scholarship, diversity and citizenship can be realized because our financial aid program provides educational opportunity to families coming from many East Bay communities and beyond.” Catherine Epstein Director of Admissions and Financial Aid

“I liked walking in the water. If we don’t take care of our creek, we won’t have flowers on the bank.” JACOB P.

“I enjoyed stomping in the cool, green water. I love testing things no matter what, and this is important work because the creek helps a lot of plants grow.”

“It’s important to help the creek so that kids can play there at the park.”

“I really enjoyed helping Sausal Creek because it is our local watershed and provides water to the plants around it.”

“I liked measuring the creek and putting a thermometer in it and measuring the depth. We can keep track of the measurements to see how it changes.” KYLER C.

Founded in 1987 as a partnership between the Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) and Head-Royce School, Heads Up is a year-round academic enrichment program that has served more than 1,000 low-income youth from Oakland. Now entering its 26th year, the mission of the Heads Up program is to provide underserved middle-school students of color from the OUSD with challenging and enriching educational programs to prepare them for academic success and to help them develop an appreciation for community and civic responsibility. The vast majority of Heads Up students have traditionally been the first in their families to attend college. Oversight for the program—including teaching, mentoring and fundraising—is provided by Head-Royce. Donations to the program directly fund Heads Up’s annual operations.

“For many of the Heads Up students, arriving to a safe campus is a unique experience within itself and offers a temporary break from the harsh realities of the violence and poverty that accompany their daily life. Heads Up is their access to greater opportunity and without it, they become statistics competing in a broken system just like everyone else.” Dexter Moore Jr., Heads Up Teacher (pictured right)

“We are big fans of the Heads Up program as it provides students a safe environment to pursue their love of learning. The program also focuses on teaching the students how to advocate and speak up for themselves. This combination allows the students to have pride in their work and achieve their goals back in their own classrooms.” Samantha and Marc Furstein Parents of Jessica ’21 and Jayden ’24

“As a first-generation college student, I don’t have anyone in my (immediate) family who has gone on to college ... The Heads Up Program essentially became my uncle who graduated medical school or my mentor who knew me well enough to write me a stellar recommendation. The program became my family ... I cannot imagine my life without Heads Up. It provided me with the extra resources I could not find through the Oakland public school system. Heads Up truly bridged my two worlds, helping me become the woman I am today.” Mously Diakhate, Heads Up alumna

“I think a lot of high school students live in close proximity to each other but it’s a challenge to carpool when people have different schedules. We definitely have too many cars in the lot when we could encourage people to reduce their carbon footprint and carpool or take the bus.”

“The school has created a really fabulous busing infrastructure and we know that there are many kids who could take bus but don’t. So we’re working on that as well as (the school) divesting from (investment in) fossil fuels as the two big things this year.”

“I am grateful to work at a school that weaves an understanding of our interconnectedness with everything living into our curriculum and supports students making changes to preserve this precious balance with nature. The environment has awesome powers of healing and our students have been raised with environmental ideals, from teachers as well as parents.” Laura Galligan Chair of the World Languages Department

“My four years at Head-Royce played a significant part in where I am and who I am today. Head Royce not only challenged me and prepared me academically for Occidental College, but also provided me with confidence and assurance that I could succeed in anything I put my mind to. I would not have been able to attend Head-Royce if it had not been for the scholarships I received each year and for that I am ever grateful. The rigorous

Tejal Patel Jon Pont Karlyne Myers Reilly Margot Binnewies Robison David Sternberg Tacy Trowbridge Camille Watson

education, support from teachers and faculty and endless opportunities both in


and out of the classroom that I received at Head Royce made my future (in my

Kate Adler

career/life) possible.”

Heads Up Since 1987, Heads Up has provided tuition-free academic enrichment and support for underserved middle school students, preparing them for lives of academic success and civic engagement. A combination of individual gifts, foundation grants and a very successful benefit fundraiser— Big Night Out—raised more than $182,000 in essential funds for the program. Through the stalwart generosity of individuals and supporting foundations, Heads Up has served more than 1,000 students since the program began. We are grateful for the community of donors who make this program possible.

“For 20 years the Heads Up program has successfully worked with hundreds of Oakland elementary school students in their transition from middle school and in preparation for college.” Elihu Harris, former Mayor of Oakland

Head-Royce School ··· Annual Report Winter 2013  49

Profiles in Giving Gratitude for the lifelong friendships and unforgettable experiences made while a student at the Anna Head School inspired Kate Johnson Spector ’71 to make a long-term commitment to HeadRoyce through a gift from her estate. Kate, a Chicago resident, has provided for Head-Royce in her will and has powerful memories of her experience as a student. How did you come to be at the Anna Head School?

I come from a long line of women in my family who attended Bay Area girls’ schools, including Anna Head’s. My parents knew that the small classes, caring atmosphere and school traditions would be a good learning environment for me as I approached the middle school and high school years. Thus, in September of 1964, I entered sixth grade at our new campus of The Anna Head School on Lincoln Avenue, wearing my crisp, yellow, seersucker dress uniform and saddle shoes.

hills above downtown Oakland, I learned how to be more comfortable with my adolescent self in that environment. We students were taught to believe that our thoughts and opinions counted and were important. I learned how to get along, play, compete and work with other girls and women. From these experiences, I learned the value of women’s friendship and camaraderie that have helped me throughout my life, my work and with the roles I have in my family and community. That is why I cherish my friends and teachers from my days at Head’s, 50 years later.

What do you remember most about your time at Anna Head?

We had some wonderful teachers at Head’s. I remember the books we read and the lively discussions that were shared. And, I remember the candid laughter that could erupt at any moment with a fellow student or a faculty member. We were taught to think critically and to analyze … and prepare for any pop quiz that might arrive during class time. I will add that we were strongly encouraged to ask questions. I believe that we fatigued our faculty with our constant questions and tenacious ability to not back down. Years later, we have become strong women and conscientious citizens. How did the school influence you?

In 1971, we were still a school of all girls, all the time, with grades 1 through 12. The 1960s and 1970s were challenging times in our cities and across the country. Though we were in a tiny cloistered place, high in the

Why did you decide to remember Head-Royce in your estate plans?

My husband and I first prepared our wills when I was pregnant with our younger son, a 2013 college graduate. It was clear the time had arrived when we needed to look at our estate planning. By starting anew, we were able to be calmly objective and make changes in a thoughtful and loving way. This process was liberating and felt right. It allowed me the opportunity to remember Head-Royce. I now know that at a time in the future, my family will honor my personal wishes for a bequest to our alma mater. I feel gratified that I choose to support the vision of our founder, Miss Anna Head, in the years to come.

HRS Focuses on Citizenship As part of a year-long focus, students, faculty and parents are exploring one of the important tenets of our mission: citizenship. Defining the term “citizenship” has been part of our work—what does it mean to be a “good” citizen at Head-Royce and in the larger world? How do we develop kindness, ethics and compassion along the way? How can we and our children make the best decisions possible as we navigate a changing, competitive and challenging world? To answer these questions, we are engaged in various citizenship exercises, including the creation of classroom projects such as “Random Acts of Kindness” in the fourth grade or a personal essay that discusses ethics and political commitment in a senior history elective.

Another way we’re exploring the concept of citizenship is through a “citizenship tree” created by Upper School art students in the Middle School hallway on the way to the Community Room. Students and faculty from all divisions have posted answers to the question: “What does citizenship mean to me?” on tree leaves.

Visit the Blog, Join the Conversation In addition to the activities at the division, department and class level, Assistant Head of School and Academic Dean Crystal Land is devoting her blog ( to the theme of citizenship this year. Posts on her blog include:

In addition, parents recently convened in book groups to discuss the ethics and challenges of parenting; more events are in the works for the winter and spring.
