Meet Our Teachers

"Our faculty are passionate about teaching, as well as experts in their fields and in the ages they teach. Children view teachers as allies who encourage them to work collaboratively, respecting and appreciating their own and each other’s unique strengths."
Jason Gray, Head of School
