Board of Directors

To say the School owes its success to the hard work of its board is dangerously cliché, but it’s true.  The work of a board during an institution’s initial stages of development requires members to be involved in the minutia of daily operations and problem solving, while simultaneously attending to the big picture and long-term planning necessary for sustainable growth. It’s both a lot of work and a balancing act. The School is sincerely grateful to the individuals listed below for their countless hours of time and financial donations.  It’s true; we wouldn’t have made it this far without you!

Past board members
