Our School Board & Governance

Our Board of Trustees and Executive Directors are volunteers and partners in carrying out the mission of Oak Hill School to ensure that students receive the best-possible education. We also have a variety of board committees made up of volunteers who focus on specific aspects of the school, such as development, facilities, finances and governance.

Board of Trustees & Executive Directors

Our Board of Trustees and Executive Directors oversee our school’s top administrators, known as our “heads of school,” working together as a team to ensure the school’s success. More specifically, the Board of Trustees focuses on sustainability, which allows the school’s administration and faculty to provide the exceptional curriculum and teaching that define the Oak Hill School experience, while our Executive Directors support the long-term implementation of the Board of Trustees’ strategic vision for the school, related to our daily affairs.
