Greg Bamford, Head of School

Head of School
303-440-7520, ext. 100

Greg earned a B.A. in English and Philosophy from Georgetown University and an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from Columbia University. After 13 years working as a teacher, advisor, coach, and faculty leader in top-ranked independent schools, he took a break from full-time teaching in 2010 to experiment with new ways of teaching and learning. The projects that he launched eventually became Leadership+Design, a non-profit organization that works with school leaders across the country to support educational innovation. But after four years flying around the country to work with schools, Greg was hungry to be a long-term part of one school community. In Watershed, he found a school that embodied the future of learning and became Head of School in 2014. Over the last three years, he has helped guide the school's 78% enrollment growth and a successful ACIS accreditation process. Greg is married and has two daughters, one of whom will be a 6th grader at Watershed in fall 2017. You can find him on Twitter at @gregbamford or via his blog at
