About Peck


Leadership and Governance

The Peck School’s leadership team and Board of Trustees are two of the school’s greatest strengths; bringing together diverse groups of engaged and informed individuals to act as role models for our students. Our Board is composed of leaders in the community, often current and past parents, alumni, and education professionals. They ensure sound governance and clear vision, and carefully steward, sustain and perpetuate the school’s mission.  

Our leadership team members are expert educationalists and administrators who are constantly assessing the pedagogy, program, and curriculum of the school as well as managing the support and safety of our students on a daily basis.

Meet Our Board of Trustees

The Board is comprised of 23 elected members as well as the Head of School and President of the Parents’ Association, who serve as ex-officio members. Trustees serve as a major resource for the support and growth of our School; providing fiduciary oversight of operations, establishing broad policy goals, and supporting long-range strategic planning to ensure The Peck School’s bright future.
