Serving Young People in Berkeley for 47 Years

Maybeck, established in 1972, is a vibrant community dedicated to learning, where all forms of diversity can flourish amid mutual support, respect, and responsibility. Through our small classes, high expectations, academic excellence, and programs outside the school, students prepare for college and acquire the tools to engage actively and creatively in the wider world.

Maybeck High School offers a unique opportunity for students to engage with an academically challenging college-preparatory curriculum in a collaborative rather than competitive environment. Maybeck students find creative, intelligent peers who are excited about learning.

At Maybeck, the students and faculty together are engaged in intense intellectual exploration. Students call teachers by their first names and take part in lively discussions in our seminar classes. We respect our students as individuals, encourage independent thought and trust them to be responsible for and invested in their own educations. In this challenging but safe setting, students are encouraged to take personal and intellectual risks. Our graduates leave us as sophisticated thinkers and confident navigators of the world around them.
