Golden Hills School is an accredited independent junior-kindergarten through eighth grade school in the El Dorado Hills Business Park.

Karen O’Donnell took over as Head of Schools in July 2012 and brings an understanding of best practices in the classroom, the boardroom and her own administrators’ office. Differentiated instruction lets students learn in different ways and paces, with one-on-one attention designed to instill self-confidence and trust.

“If you have trust you can take risks, try new programs, break through boundaries and get extraordinary things done,” said Jim Gaines, the school’s Director of Admissions and Marketing.

“We’re empowering everyone, including the students, to think for themselves here,” said O’Donnell.

The result? “Kids and their teachers are engaged in learning,” she said. “We’re creating critical thinkers.”
