Announcing School One's New Head of School
School One's Board of Directors is pleased to announce Christopher Hayes as School One’s next Head of School. After an extensive national search process, Mr. Hayes was chosen from an impressive pool of candidates.
Christopher brings over 30 years of experience in education, including seven years as a head of school, most recently at The Calverton School in MD. After earning a BA from Williams College and an MAT in Teaching of Social Studies at Brown University, he held various teaching and administrative positions at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy in FL, Cheshire Academy in CT, The Wellington School in OH, Worcester Academy in MA, Shady Side Academy in PA, and The Greenwood School in VT. Christopher comes well-positioned to build on School One’s record of success and lead it to its 50th anniversary year and beyond.
“School One sought a new head of school who is authentically collaborative, respects student voices, has been successful in launching new initiatives and who is a relationship builder who connects with students, faculty and families. Teachers, board members and colleagues at his former school pointed to his heart of pure gold and his ability to listen and care so much about the school, the faculty and the students. He has integrity, he is open, collaborative and compassionate – all of which are characteristics in accord with School One and our community.” - Janet Krueger, president of the board.
