Head of School

We are delighted to welcome Angela Taylor to Park Day School beginning July 1, 2020!

Angela Taylor has been a school leader for nearly 20 years at the Convent & Stuart Hall Schools in San Francisco. She currently serves as the Head of School at Convent Elementary (K-8 girls division). She and her husband Shaw have been proud and active Oakland residents for two decades. Angela impressed our school community in many ways, including in how she and her current team have come together “to stretch students to meet the challenge of leading transformational change in a world that is becoming more and more polarized and fragmented.” A longtime educator before moving into school leadership, Angela started her career as a teacher at the esteemed progressive school, The Children’s School, in Atlanta, GA. She has a B.A. in Child Development from Spelman College in Atlanta, and an M.A. in Educational Administration from the University of Massachusetts, Boston.
