Head of School Search 

In January 2021, HRS Head of School, Crystal Land, announced her plans to retire in June 2022 after 32 years of dedicated service to the School. The Board of Trustees has since begun to take steps to initiate a search for the next leader of Head-Royce School. We have retained an executive search firm and are in the process of forming a Search Committee consisting of Board members, parents, teachers, staff, and alumni to find a leader who is aligned with Head-Royce's mission and positioned to bring our School continued success in the future.

This webpage will serve as the hub for all information related to our Head Search, including ongoing updates on the search progress and archived communications.

Head-Royce has engaged with Educational Directions, a nationally recognized consulting firm for independent schools and an acknowledged leader in executive search.
