Board of Trustees

Garrison Forest School is governed by a Board of Trustees, which usually meets four times per year and consists of alumnae, current and past parents and grandparents, and friends of the School. The Board sets policy, makes financial decisions, employs the Head of School, elects new Trustees and keeps informed about all aspects of school life. The Board committees include Buildings and Grounds, Executive, Development, Finance, School Life, Enrollment and Marketing, Human Resources and Trusteeship.
