Board of Trustees

At Windward, as in most independent schools, decision-making authority at the highest level resides in a volunteer Board of Trustees, whose membership often includes current parents. The Board of Trustees does not intervene in the daily affairs of the School, such as curriculum development and hiring, evaluating, or firing of faculty members and staff. 

Instead, the Board focuses on three areas critical to the success of any independent school: 
  1. It selects, evaluates, and supports the Head of School, to whom it delegates authority to manage the School;
  2. It develops broad institutional policies that guide the Head of School in running the School;
  3. It is accountable for the financial well-being of the School. In the conduct of its official business, the Board acts only as a whole; individual Trustees, including the Board Chair, have no authority to act unless specifically authorized to do so by the Board acting as a whole.

Faculty and Staff

Windward teachers are experts in their fields, driven to continuously hone their skills. More importantly, they are excited to teach and share their own love of learning with students. Faculty and students enjoy the discoveries of scholarship together in a positive, comfortable classroom environment. These strong relationships promote lasting bonds that are a hallmark of Windward’s learning community. This close bond between faculty and students is a cornerstone of a Windward education.
