Leadership

 

While all Waldorf schools are part of an international movement, each school is independent, self-governing, and distinct in character. The Waldorf School of Princeton is led by a collaboration of the Board of Trustees, the College of Teachers, the Parent Council, and the Administration. Each has its specific role that creates a vibrant, healthy educational institution. Read more about these roles in our governance document.

 

The Waldorf School of Princeton is a nonprofit organization that is a member of Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA), and accredited by the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools (NJAIS).

 

Board of Trustees

 

The Board is responsible for the legal and financial integrity of the school. It is composed of current and alumni parents, faculty, and friends from the wider community. Working subcommittees of the Board are vital in moving the school’s strategic plans forward.

 

Board Chair: Dean Smith, boardchair@princetonwaldorf.org

 

One of the primary responsibilities of the Board of Trustees is to engage in creating our Strategic Plan, which has been updated for 2016-19.

College of Teachers

 

College Chair: Jenny Foster

 

The College is responsible to develop, implement, review, and refresh its Waldorf curriculum, educational policies and teaching approach. Concerned with the quality of its programs, the College oversees the faculty, the children, and the manner in which the school operates. Composed of faculty and staff members who are particularly committed to the philosophy of the school, the College regularly devotes meeting time to study various aspects of the developing human being.
