Two Finalists Named
After a national search over a busy summer and early fall, the Head of School Search Committee is excited to announce that we have finalists for the position visiting WMS from October 11th to 13th and October 18th to 20th. The candidates bring a wealth of educational leadership and experience; a bio of each candidate will be shared closer to the visit dates. The opportunity to serve as WMS’s next head of school attracted an impressive group of candidates, which is a great testament to the strength and mission of our school. The Search Committee believes each finalist is a strong fit to serve as our next Head of School and looks forward to having them on campus.
Finalists will meet with all members of the community – students, parents, faculty, and Board. If your schedule permits, please plan to attend 1 of the 2 sessions scheduled for each candidate. Hopefully, having 2 sessions at different times will enable you all to meet the prospective candidates. Please realize that while we are carefully focused on gaining a full sense of each candidate, the candidates also will be considering carefully whether the WMS community is a match for them and their families. Thus, we appreciate in advance the warm welcome you will be instrumental in extending to these guests.
In order to solicit feedback following each finalist visit, you will receive a link to an online candidate impression form via email, the results of which will be compiled confidentially by our search consultants, Independent Thinking. We encourage your active participation in this most important process for WMS.
