Jeff Guckert

After graduating from Stanford with a PhD in Chemistry, Jeff was looking for something meaningful to do with his life.  Fortunately, he found teaching.

For 21 years, at three renowned schools – The Bishops School (La Jolla, CA), Sidwell Friends School (Washington, DC) and Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences (Santa Monica, CA) – Jeff has developed his educational philosophy serving as science teacher for grades 6-12, department chair, academic dean, division director, dean of faculty, and assistant head of school.  Now Jeff brings his wealth of knowledge, experience, and compassion to a team of incredibly creative, forward-thinking educators who are launching a next-generation school, predicated on the most recent brain and educational research, that addresses the needs of today’s students.
