An inspiring and empowering educational leader, you share with The York School a belief in high academic achievement and character development, supported by classroom innovation and investment in professional development. Reporting to the Board, you will embrace and advance the school’s strategic goals, its friendly community, and its culture of inclusion, collaboration, and encouragement. You are known for your integrity, consistency, and open, respectful communications, and you value the importance of a healthy environment that promotes wellness and environmental sustainability.
You have a track record of executive leadership success in progressive, positive environments characterized by clarity of mission and a consultative approach to developing the school’s vision.
