Education Leadership Team

The Educational Leadership Team (ELT) shares the work of understanding, shaping and advancing the vision for the academic program of the school to ensure that there is symmetry with the mission statement and continuity in students/families learning experiences. The ELT will collaborate with all faculty and staff to provide guidance, support, modeling, equity and leadership as we work together toward our shared vision.

Board of Directors

Fayerweather Street School is governed by the Board of Directors, which plays a key role in establishing the school’s mission, vision, strategic goals, and policies. There are four operational committees, the Executive, Finance, Governance and Nominating Committees, which assist in oversight and provide an operational structure for the functioning of the Board.

The Board is comprised primarily of current and past parents with expertise in various fields including finance, business, development, education, architecture, medicine, and law. All parents in the school are members of the Fayerweather Street School Corporation, and the Corporation is responsible for electing new Board members each spring.
