Head of School Search Information

Read the Head of School position description.

In January 2017, Head of School Lee Drolet announced that she would be leaving due to a serious family medical issue. The PKS community has rallied around Lee, and while we regret losing her leadership, as a community we fully support her decision. 

With this announcement the Presidio Knolls School Board of Trustees has initiated a Head of School (HOS) search. The Board of Trustees has retained Carney Sandoe & Associates, one of the nation’s most experienced independent school executive search firms, to assist with the process.

Presidio Knolls School is a progressive Mandarin immersion school. We look forward to selecting a HOS who will lead our community in our ongoing mission to inspire and empower creative, confident, and engaged global citizens. 
Here is a high-level overview of the process:

  • Board forms Search Committee (complete)
  • Search firm visits campus to meet with PKS community members (teachers, staff, families) (complete)
