Our Faculty & Community

The growth of our school has been a joint effort on the part of the leaders, faculty members and parents who have made The York School what it is today.

Beginning with Barbara Goodwin-Zeibots in 1965, to the engaged and energetic Leadership Team, The York School has always been guided by visionary educators who surround themselves with insightful and passionate administrators. Our Executive Leadership team carries on the legacy of best practices and continual progress. 


Our faculty is a diverse and talented group with extensive international experience. The faculty culture is collegial and courses with ideas that drive professional growth through both in-house and out-of-school experiences. Involved in all aspects of school life and qualified extensively with professional certifications and graduate degrees, our teachers strike a perfect balance between challenging our students to excel and providing them with individual support. 


Our parents are a varied and interesting group whose dedication to the school has always been a driving force. Our continued growth has been possible because of the time, expertise and financial resources that our parents have poured into the school over the years. Our parents are a critical element that makes The York School the leading educational environment it has become.
