An Independent School • Grades 5-12

by Bert Valdman, chair of Lakeside’s head of school search committee

The search committee for Lakeside’s next head of school has been busy! A number of highly qualified candidates from around the world were considered for the position. As we progressed from a long list of candidates to a short list, the Lakeside community’s input has been foremost in our mind. Thank you again for your thoughtful comments; the community surveys and stakeholder meetings helped shape the finalist pool — and helped candidates understand Lakeside as it is today and our community’s hopes for the future. 

Our search is on schedule. We look forward to sharing exciting news with you early this summer. Keep an eye on your email and, as always, you’ll be able to find updates on the Head of School Search webpage
