Welcome From Head of School

Welcome to Seven Peaks School! 

As a parent of three former students, and active member of the Bend community, I am honored and humbled to be able to serve as the Head of School at Seven Peaks. 

The one thing that has always stood out to me about our school is the unique culture that holds together the values of kindness and academic excellence. I see this today in the way our faculty and staff are approaching the challenges of managing education during a pandemic; I see it in the way our students genuinely care for each and for their schoolwork as they work collaboratively on group projects to share with the wider community; I see it in the parents who reach out when there is a need and volunteer their time and expertise to make our school better, safer, and kinder; and I see it in our community members who have dedicated time and energy to serve the vision of Seven Peaks and make it an anchor institution in this rapidly growing Central Oregon mountain community. 

In this moment in time, one characterized by rapid change and uncertainty, Seven Peaks continues to hold firm to our mission of nurturing each individual child toward a lifelong love of learning so that they will be able to thrive in the complexities of our world, empowered and inspired to do good for our neighbors, near and far. And, as an IB (International Baccalaureate) school, we are committed to a world-class, inquiry-driven, internationally-minded, and project-based approach to educating the whole child. 

If you are new to our community, or a long time resident, and you are looking for a school in Bend to entrust the education of your children through 8th grade, come visit us at Seven Peaks. I look forward to welcoming you and introducing you to the wonderful things happening here.
