Mount Tamalpais Head of School Leads by Inspiration

Mount Tamalpais Head of School Leads by Inspiration, Marin Magazine


Educator. Father. Scholar. Adventurer. For someone as accomplished as Andrew Davis, these words only scratch the surface of his many talents and achievements. Beginning his third year as Head of School at Mount Tamalpais School, Andrew has transformed the Kindergarten-8th grade school into a destination for families and educators. As one colleague put it, “Andrew comes to work each day with a true passion for his job and everyone on campus feels it. His expertise, humor, kindness and love for the learning process sets a tone that makes the school irresistible.”

It’s no surprise he’s well known – and well beloved – in the Bay Area. A Stanford graduate (he holds three Stanford degrees: BA, MA, MBA), Andrew is as comfortable discussing pedagogy as photography, math as mountain bikes. He’s passionate about education, as his signature quote attests: “Childhood is not a renewable resource.” You can find him every school day high-fiving students as they get off the bus. This year he’ll be high-fiving his own son as he starts kindergarten on campus this fall.
