Director of School
The Director of School is expected both to provide knowledgeable, collaborative oversight of Montessori academics and to manage the myriad daily operations of a small school. The Director of School reports to the Board of Trustees and is responsible for oversight of all academic, extracurricular, enrollment, retention, and personnel matters, as well as management of the school budget, reporting and compliance, and external relations. The Director is the public face of the school, and represents the school’s interests whether at public events, interviewing prospective students, or in daily communications with families. The successful candidate must enthusiastically support the school’s mission of educational excellence in a Montessori environment and must be committed to that mission in all aspects of the school’s daily operations, building upon the significant accomplishments of the past decade. The Director of School will possess an educational vision to take the school forward in the 21st century.
