This position has been filled.

Since 1855, Greene Street Friends School (GSFS) has educated children according to the Quaker principles of honesty, respect for the individual, peace, and simplicity. The ethos of the GSFS community is rooted deeply in respect for everyone, stemming from the Quaker belief in “that of God” in all, and strengthened by the caring, spiritual relationship with Green Street Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. GSFS inspires students to be world changers and seekers of knowledge, equity, and social justice. Strong academic fundamentals and ethical strength prepare GSFS students for a rapidly changing world and enable them to succeed with enthusiasm for learning and for life.

Reporting to the Board of Trustees, the new Head of School will be a community leader who embodies the mission of GSFS. Guided by Quaker values, the Head will be thoughtful, inspirational, and innovative, and will provide spirit-led leadership in the operations and management of the School.
