The Cambridge Montessori School Board of Trustees is committed to the preservation and implementation of the School's mission.
The volunteer members include parents of current and former CMS students, educators, professionals, and community leaders all of whom share a belief in Montessori education and a passion for the school. Collectively as a group, the Board is responsible for the hiring and evaluation of the Head, strategic planning, and the long-term financial stewardship and governance of the School. It provides leadership in all development and fundraising efforts as well. In short, the Board exists to ensure that Cambridge Montessori School is viable for the children of its current and future students.
The Board works through strategically based committees, which include Finance; Committee on Trustees; Head Support and Evaluation; Development; and Campus and Facilities in addition to ad hoc Committees as needed. Each trustee is active on at least one committee, typically meeting monthly. Committees make recommendations that provide insight and direction for Board governance decisions. The Board is always interested in receiving recommendations for future trustee candidates. Please contact any Trustee or the Head of School to learn more about the nomination process and serving to support the growth and institutional development of CMS.
