All Saints’ Day School Hires Leading Educator as New Head of School
CARMEL, CA • FEBRUARY 8, 2016 • All Saints’ Day School today announced that Mr. Hugh Jebson, current Assistant Head of School at the Berkeley Preparatory School in Tampa, Florida, will become the next Head of School at All Saints' Day School.
Hugh Jebson brings the qualities of a master teacher, a seasoned and collaborative administrator, and a caring and humble leader to the All Saints' Community.
"We are thrilled to welcome Hugh Jebson as our next head of school. His passion for children and education, his respect for our mission and values, and his ability to communicate his vision, was evident during his visit here and during his meetings with constituents of our school," said board chair Jason Yee. "Hugh is a passionate educator and a talented, inspirational leader whose vision, commitment, and abilities will successfully define and sustain All Saints' bright future.”
Jebson's vision for an outstanding school community is built on a model that captures the spirit and mission of independent education. It consists of flexible concentric circles, in which the innermost resides "children". Surrounding children are the circles of faculty, staff, parents, Board of Trustees, alumni and friends. Each ring can and will touch the others as the day-to-day life of our community proceeds. Each is dedicated to improving the lives of our children and all join together to embrace opportunity, celebrate excellence, and promote joy.
“From the moment I stepped on campus, I was deeply impressed by the All Saints' community,” said Hugh Jebson. “The school's emphasis on academic rigor, character education and dedication to ensuring each child is known, nurtured and well resonate greatly with me. It is a tremendous honor to join the community, lead the school and serve the mission. All Saints' is clearly an outstanding school, and I look forward to spending time with the various constituencies to learn how we can partner to make it even better.”
Jebson is in his twenty-fifth year of service to education, including fifteen years of operational experience as a senior administrator and school leader. Throughout his career, Hugh has retained direct contact with students as a teacher of history, advisor, and coach. A first generation immigrant to the United States, he began his teaching career in England and has served a number of elite day and boarding schools there and in the United States. He is a teaching fellow of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, has been published widely, and has presented to numerous regional and national independent school conferences on a range of topics, including student safety, academic leadership and faculty evaluation.
