ISA Directs Eton School Head Search

Eton School (Bellevue, WA) has engaged Ian Symmonds & Associates to conduct its search for a new Head of School. Founded in 1978, Eton is a premier independent Montessori school serving grades Pre-K through 8. Eton School reflects the inspiring vision and commitment of its founder, Dr. Patricia Feltin, whose passion and wisdom have guided the school for the past 33 years. It has grown from a school of 75 children in grades one through three to a thriving independent elementary school enrolling more than 320 students.

For over 30 years, Eton School has gathered an exceptional group of passionate educators and a diverse community of supportive families focused on empowering children’s intellectual potential while nurturing their social and emotional development. It now seeks a leader who is a passionate educator, experienced leader and innovative thinker, well versed in Montessori, to step into the challenging role of Head of School. The community looks for someone who models an unconditional acceptance and respect of others as well as a commitment to lifelong learning. An individual who brings enthusiasm, integrity and intellect will thrive and experience success at Eton.

The application deadline is September 1, 2011 and the new Head will assume responsibilities on July 1, 2012. Please review the full Opportunity Statement here.
