GOVERNANCE & LEADERSHIP

The Park School Administrative Team and Board of Trustees are committed to advancing equity & inclusion in the School's policies and practices. The School's leadership examines individual, collective, and institutional bias, and actively works to ensure that our diverse community is reflected in the composition of the Administration, Board, and employee body. Our clear commitment to learn, change, and remain vigilant in the pursuit of equity and justice in our School will best advance this work.
