Our Faculty & Staff

Saint Hilary School faculty and staff is a community of ardent learners. Our teachers are dedicated to our students; have a passion for education; and continually improve their skills by keeping up on the latest research for lower and upper elementary and middle school trends.

Each of Saint Hilary School’s Core Teachers have achieved their teacher credentials, with 40% of our teachers having earned their Master's Degree or doctorate. A majority of the classroom aides are also credentialed. The Saint Hilary faculty is experienced with an average number of years teaching of 15 years. A small teacher to student ratio of 9:1 allows for dedicated, individual attention for students throughout the day. Many of our teachers have received teaching awards, including the entire Saint Hilary faculty receiving the 2021 Tiburon Teacher of the Year award.

As a professional learning community, Saint Hilary School is committed to supporting our teachers’ ongoing professional development. The Teachers Education Fund was established in 2009 to provide financial help for our academic leaders to participate in everything from advanced degrees to one-day intensive seminars. Through this parent-supported fund, our academic staff is able to stay current in best practices, to the benefit of the student learning experience.
