The current school year has been anything but normal. Teachers and learners across the globe have been required to use new learning models and modalities of instruction. Success depends on an inventor’s mindset: Being nimble, drawing on faculty expertise, finding creative ways to deliver the curriculum, and developing strategies to embrace change through the lens of empathy. This mindset is part of the academic culture at Phillips Brooks School (PBS). During this uncertain and challenging time, the school is on a strong footing to realize its dual goal of offering a premier academic program while nurturing kind and emotionally resilient children.
PBS views this time in its history as a transformative opportunity. The school is poised to leverage its strengths and build an ambitious and aspirational future. As a top-notch elementary school, PBS wants to be an educational model that others schools look to for inspiration.
The PBS community looks forward to welcoming a new senior leader to achieve this exciting future: assistant head of school for academics (AHoS). Reporting to the head of school, the AHoS will lead the academic program, engage other school leaders as a strategic thought-partner, and drive academic strategy. This position will be an essential member of the administrative team, oversee daily academic operations, and partner with faculty and other leaders. PBS is excited to onboard this new position on July 1, 2021.
