Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to The Waverly SHeidi_Johnson_Head_of_Schoolchool! We are a progressive school serving students and their families from young kindergarten through grade 12. Established in 1993, Waverly has made its mark among Los Angeles area independent schools as innovative, challenging, and committed to developmental and integrated learning. As you journey through our website, you’ll discover our three campuses, exceptional faculty, thoughtful programs, and expressive students.

Waverly is diverse and culturally rich; our families live in many Los Angeles area neighborhoods. Some students start as four-year-olds and stay through high school graduation; others transfer in at various ages from schools, small and large, public and private. As Head of School, it is my pleasure to get to know our students, their families, and the many contributions they make to the life of the school. A student once said in her admissions interview, “I want to go to a school that will be different because I am there.” Waverly is a school where each student’s presence makes a difference. Here, students don’t just attend school; they help to create it.

This website is your first stop in learning about Waverly and its progressive traditions and pedagogy, but by no means should it be your last. Please plan to attend a tour and get to know us in person. I look forward to meeting you.

Heidi Johnson
