Board of Trustees

Harbor School is a non-profit organization governed by a Board of Trustees which hires a Head of School to serve as the school’s Chief Executive Officer. The role of the Board of Trustees involves strategic planning, financial oversight, setting broad school policy, and managing the Head of School. 

Members of the Board volunteer their time to provide stewardship for Harbor School. This commitment represents a significant and hugely important contribution to the future of our school. Trustees are carefully selected based on the needs of the Board and the school as well as an individual’s commitment to the school’s mission, cornerstone values, and willingness to serve. 

If you are interested in finding out more about the Board of Trustees, please contact Mark McGough, Head of School, at .
