Meet Our Head of School
Raj Mundra is Lick-Wilmerding High School's 14th Head of School.
Raj Mundra is in his first year as Head of School at Lick-Wilmerding High School in San Francisco. Before accepting the head of school position at LWHS, Raj served in a number of roles at Phillips Academy in Andover, MA.

Over the years he also taught biology, coached football, and lived in dorms.
Mr. Mundra was the founder and director of the Niswarth program, which partnered Andover students and faculty with organizations in South Asia for 15 summers in community engagement experiences with the core values of humility, empathy, and gratitude.

In addition to his time at Andover, he has also served as the Deputy Head of the Secondary School at the Aga Khan Academy in Mombasa, Kenya in 2003, and as a visiting faculty member in science and service at the American School of Bombay in 2010.
