Board of Trustees

The leadership of the Board of Trustees is integral to the success of Paul Cuffee School. While day-to-day matters rest with the Head of School and the three school principals, the Board of Trustees is the school’s primary governing body. The Board consists of parents, faculty, members of the community, descendants of Paul Cuffee and two student representatives. It meets nine times a year to provide oversight, long-range strategic planning, expansion and growth preparation, and financial support.
