On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we are excited to announce the appointment, by unanimous vote, of Stephen A. Farley as the next Head of the Kingsley Montessori School, starting July 1, 2018. Steve’s appointment represents the culmination of a comprehensive national search that began in October of 2017 with Spencer Stuart, a highly acclaimed national search firm.
The Search Committee was most impressed with Steve’s ability to confidently express his vast experience and thoughtful ideas while maintaining a warm, approachable demeanor. He has found success in collaborating with others and building community. Steve encompasses all of the strengths needed in a Head of School, including hiring, admissions/enrollment, diversity, strategic planning, budgeting, professional development, and curriculum.
In response to his appointment, Stephen said, "I am honored to accept the offer to serve the Kingsley Montessori School as its next Head of School and humbled by the trust the Board of Trustees has placed in me. I am also excited to be stepping into this role at such a pivotal moment in the school’s history when it is poised to capitalize on its considerable strengths and to take its next steps forward."
