The Board of Trustees focuses on long-range goals and plans, hiring and evaluating the Head of School, policy considerations, and fiscal management including budgeting and fundraising.
The Board is comprised of 26 trustees including parents/guardians, faculty, the Head of School, and external community members. The Family Association Chair is an ex-officio member. External members often include alumni, alumni parents/guardians, administrators from other local independent schools, leaders in the Portola and surrounding areas, and representatives from relevant sectors. Faculty members serve two-year terms and all other members join for at least one three-year term. Parents/guardians and staff also often serve on Board Committees.
