Head of School Search


In June 2021, Head of School Mike Beck will leave Dunn School after 13 years of leadership. An international search for Dunn's ninth Head of School is now underway. The new Head will assume the position on July 1, 2021.

"We are so grateful to Mike for helping us to construct such a solid foundation for Dunn’s very bright future. The next Head of School will be fortunate to inherit and build upon this enduring cornerstone."  -Jay Conger, Chair of the Board of Trustees

"It is my privilege and honor to serve as Dunn's eighth Head of School," Mike wrote in a letter to the Dunn School family. "It has been and continues to be my absolute pleasure working with this inspiring faculty as we will together graduate 13 years of seniors all poised to be conscientious global citizens."

Dunn's Board of Trustees has formed a twelve-member search committee to guide the school through the process of selecting a new Head of School.  The Board has retained Educational Directions, an executive search firm, to help identify candidates and manage the search process. The search committee will keep the Dunn community informed throughout the search process.  We will update this page as the search progresses.
