The Head-Royce School in Oakland, California, educates its over 800 girls and boys in grades K-12 to be citizens of a global world. To this end, even Lower School students travel to Quebec, and older students travel farther afield to India, Thailand, and China. The school has a World Languages building in which instruction is given in Latin, Spanish, French, and Mandarin. In addition, the school fosters diversity, and about 46% of its students represent diversity, as do one third of the faculty. The school has a green initiative, and solar panels on its middle school and gym generate about 25% of the school's power. Read more about this innovative California school.
