OUR HEAD OF SCHOOL

Wendy Xa

Head of School

Two-time school founder. Neuroscientist.  Mom.

 

Terra Marin is Wendy’s “encore project” after founding Presidio Knolls, the award-winning private Mandarin-immersion school in San Francisco.

 

“I created my first school, Presidio Knolls, to be the school I wanted for my own two children. It was incredible to watch it become everything I dreamed of. Then, over ten years working with hundreds of students and teachers, I learned how to create something even better. That’s what Terra Marin is.

"After three years at Terra Marin refining our outdoor educational program, we are excited to extend what we do best with the launch of our Micro-Schools this fall.”
