About our Board of Trustees
Leading Strategically with Thoughtful Governance

Planning strategically for the future
Maintaining bylaws and policies consistent with the school's mission
Selecting and evaluating the Head of School
Identifying, selecting, and orienting new trustees
Assuring the school's compliance with applicable laws and regulations
