Teachers & Staff

Calabasas teachers and staff put their education as well as their hearts into their duties, day in and day out. Working collaboratively with each other and Calabasas families, they create an atmosphere in which every student learns and thrives every day.

Please meet these amazing men and women:

"A teacher is someone who leads. There is no magic here. I do not walk on water, I do not part the sea. I just love children" -Marva Collins
