LEADERSHIP

Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees selects a Headmaster to direct, manage, and operate all aspects of PDS. The Board also sets policies on broad, strategic issues; develops and adopts long-range plans, and secures the resources for their implementation; assures appropriate stewardship of the school’s financial and other resources; and sets annual tuition and fees. They thoughtfully limit their engagement to these matters and leave all aspects of school operations to the headmaster.
