Head of School [July 2018]
Quest Montessori School, a coeducational Montessori school for students ages 18 months through 14 years, seeks a Head of School effective in July 2018.
Quest Montessori School has assembled the pieces of the puzzle necessary to realize its vision of developing the state’s foremost toddler to eighth-grade Montessori program. The vision of this authentic Montessori school is now a reality as Quest now occupies a new 12,500 square foot facility for children starting at 18 months in our Toddler Program to age 14 in our Middle School Program. A new multipurpose space is currently under construction, which will add roughly 2,500 square feet to the school.
After seven years at Quest, and four years serving as Quest’s Head of School, Michael Barclay departs at the end of the 2017-2018 school year for a new position. Therefore, the Board seeks another passionate educator to lead the school into the future.
