Education Leadership Team

The Educational Leadership Team was created in the fall of 2016 to consolidate the decision making structure at Fayerweather.  The team includes the Head of School, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Director of Equity and Inclusion, and the School Counselor. The team meets weekly to address questions or concerns brought from the staff and coordinates efforts to ensure consistency in instruction, a positive school climate, and that we are effectively meeting individual student needs.  The team structure encourages different perspectives and leverages individual strengths and leadership styles.

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.
