The Head of School search is underway, and we have been heartened and inspired by the quality and diversity of the candidates who have applied thus far. We’ve also been pleased to note the enthusiasm with which news of the search has been met by those in the extended Quaker school community. It’s a good reminder of what an immensely special place PFS is! As one Friends school head observed to us a couple days ago, “It looks like a fascinating opportunity.”
Indeed, we hope to find candidates who are experienced in the Quaker school tradition, or whose approach fits perfectly with our own, even if they aren’t yet practitioners of Quaker education per se. While we have placed our job posting on several high-impact websites, we believe that our greatest resource in finding the right person may well turn out to be you, our network. If you happen to know of someone who you think might be a good fit, by all means send along their name or encourage them to apply (please ask them to note in their cover letter that you referred them). The application deadline is June 1. Here is a link to the job posting: www.princetonfriendsschool.org/about-us/employment
We are excited about rounding up the best possible candidates in the next several weeks before we begin turning our attention to the next phase of the search.
