Head of School Search

Washington Montessori School will welcome four Head of School candidates to campus in April, and we invite parents and alum to join us in getting to know the finalists. It is the Board of Trustees’ goal to name a new Head of School to begin July 2022. 

Finalists will come to New Preston, one by one, for a preliminary evening and two subsequent days with the WMS community. These will be “hybrid visits,” in that the candidate will be in-person for individual meetings and online for all group interactions. We will, of course, be prioritizing COVID-safe practices. A sample schedule for each candidates’ visit can be found here.

Out of respect for the individual candidates and to allow those selected to appropriately inform their current employer, the names of finalists will remain confidential until the day prior to their arrival on campus. This is standard practice in Head of School searches.

Parents and alum are invited to meet each of the four finalists via Zoom on the following dates. A short bio, a Zoom invitation, and a link to complete an impression survey will be emailed to the community the day prior to each visit.
