Dr. Maurer Begins Tenure as Oxbridge Head of School

West Palm Beach, FL – Ralph Maurer, Ph.D., began his tenure as Oxbridge Academy Head of School on July 1. Dr. Maurer succeeds John Klemme, who announced earlier this year that he has chosen to return to his former position as an English teacher at the school. "The Oxbridge Board of Trustees and I are very excited as Dr. Maurer takes the reins at Oxbridge,” School Founder and Board of Trustees Chairman William Koch said.

“Our search for a new head of school identified Dr. Maurer as our leading candidate, and he’s been at the school since January 1 learning about the school and interfacing with faculty and students. At the same time, we want to thank John Klemme for his leadership these past two years."

Dr. Maurer joins Oxbridge after serving as the Headmaster of The International School Nido de Aguilas, an independent English-language international day school in Santiago, Chile. During his tenure at Nido, Dr. Maurer bolstered the school’s project-based learning program, interdisciplinary work, differentiated teaching methods, ESL, and outdoor education.

Prior to his time at Nido, Dr. Maurer was a faculty member and administrator in the Freeman School of Business at Tulane University, where he was in charge of the entrepreneurship curriculum for the Freeman School, and one of Tulane’s primary public figures on the subject. He is a Florida native, a graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy, and earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Communications Studies from Northwestern University, a Master’s of Business Administration from the University of Florida and a Ph.D. in Management Science and Engineering from Stanford University.
