Faculty and Staff

Our greatest resource.

Bringing Town's mission to life.

Our teachers are highly skilled educators, serving as mentors and facilitators rather than lecturers. They are champions, challengers, connectors, and excellent role models, pushing students to think creatively and deeply. We are committed to the growth of our teachers, with an uniquely strong emphasis on continuing professional development.

Overall teacher to student ratio at Town is 6:1, augmented by our three Division Heads, Head of School, administrators and staff that help ensure Town is a warm, welcoming, exciting place to learn and grow.
