Summary Description
The Assistant Head of School reports to the Head of School and has responsibility for all aspects of
faculty life including recruitment, hiring, orientation, assignment of responsibilities, housing, evaluation,
professional development, and the many less tangible needs faculty members have in order to learn and
grow, feel challenged and supported, and be positioned to do their work well. The Assistant Head of
School works closely with senior administrators who oversee the many areas of the school’s program
that involve faculty work. This includes working in partnership with the Associate Head for Students
Affairs, Associate Head for Academic Affairs, Dean of Community Life, Director of Athletics, Director of
Institutional Advancement and Chief Financial Officer, among others. The Assistant Head of School will
oversee the day-to-day operation of the school in the Head of School’s absence.


  • Works with key partners within and outside the school to coordinate and execute all faculty
    recruitment and hiring.
  • Designs, organizes, and leads orientation for new faculty members that runs throughout their
    first year.
  • Works with key administrative partners in assigning academic, residential, afternoon program,
    and extra-curricular responsibilities to all full-time faculty members.
  • Coordinates and oversees the evaluation of all full-time faculty members with a range of
    administrative partners who lead the school’s academic, residential, extra-curricular, and
    afternoon programs.
  • Works with both the Head of School and Director of Facilities to determine housing assignments
    and coordinate faculty moves between the school years.
  • Oversees the school’s faculty professional development budget and makes decisions on all
    faculty grants in consultation with the Head of School.
  • Provides reports and meets with the Board of Trustees on a regular basis.
  • Works closely with the Head of School and takes on his day-to-day responsibilities, as necessary.
  • Teaching and afternoon program roles are a possibility, depending on a candidate’s experience.
  • Lives on campus and is expected to be present and fully immersed in the life of the school.

Supervisor Responsibilities
The Assistant Head of School is the only member of the senior leadership team who has responsibility
for all faculty members who do not report to the Head of School. Furthermore, there will be opportunity
to take on additional direct reports at both the beginning of one’s tenure in the position, and over the
course of time as the Assistant Head of School grows in experience. These determinations will be made
with both a successful candidate’s strengths and the school’s needs in mind, and in a manner that allows
for one’s initial year to be focused on building relationships with the faculty and within the school.


  • Demonstrated leadership ability and experience inspiring teams of all sorts to work together in
    pursuit of collective goals and institutional needs.
  • An ability to balance multiple demands in ways that are well organized, clearly communicated,
    and inclusive of a wide range of perspectives within the school.
  • An empathic capacity and demonstrated ability to listen while engaging colleagues in
    conversation about professional challenges and opportunities.
  • A positive and infectious outlook and spirit as it pertains to the virtually limitless opportunities
    we have at Brooks to work with our students in mission-driven, holistic, and furthering ways.
  • A high degree of cultural competency accompanied by a palpable and demonstrated
    commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in current and previous places of employment.
  • A passion for advancing equity and justice, accompanied by an ability to lead, support, and
    shape school initiatives that aim to dismantle systemic racism and foster deeper belonging for
    all members of the school community.
  • A demonstrated ability to communicate clearly both in writing and public speaking to all school
  • An enthusiasm for high school students and for working collaboratively with fellow faculty
    members in ways that help students learn, grow, and become exemplary citizens and leaders in
    our community and communities they will be a part of in their lives.
