Board of Trustees

The Mary McDowell Friends School Board of Trustees works to ensure that the school is fulfilling its mission and to secure the school’s future. The Board, which includes current and past parents of the school, Quakers, and community members, generally meets six times throughout the school year. Trustees provide guidance to the school administration on such matters as finance, fundraising, facilities, marketing, and strategic planning.
