Meet the Board of Trustees

The governing body of the school

The Board of Trustees is the governing body of the school. The Head of School reports directly to the trustees. This structure, with the trustees at the top of the school’s organizational chart, is typical of independent schools.

Gordon has twenty-six trustees. Some are alumni, but most are parents of Gordon students or of a graduate. They meet monthly during the school year.

The Board has three obligations:

Maintaining and supporting the school’s mission
Overseeing the financial health of the school
Selecting, evaluating, and supporting the Head of School

The trustees’ work is primarily long term planning, with decisions that are implemented over periods ranging from eighteen months to five, ten and even twenty years. The day-to-day work of running the school is left in the hands of the staff, teachers and administrators.
