Meet Head of School, Angela Taylor!

Angela Taylor has been a school leader for more than 20 years. Prior to taking the helm at Park Day School in 2020, she served as the Head of School at Convent Elementary (K-8 girls division) at the Convent & Stuart Hall Schools in San Francisco, where she worked and taught for nearly two decades. She and her husband Shaw have been proud and active Oakland residents since 1997.

Angela is committed to progressive education, and to stretching 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.
