Strategic Plan

The Board of Trustees is currently leading the school through a strategic planning process. More information about ways to participate will be communicated throughout the school year. 

The Strategic Plan identifies a set of five central goals for Tower School’s second century, and details the implementation plans to meet these goals.

We will provide a distinctive and excellent program.

We will attract, support, and retain excellent faculty to serve as teachers, mentors, and role models.

We will encourage a culture of open communication within the Tower community. We must also communicate more broadly the strengths of Tower’s distinctive program to the communities of the North Shore.

We will continue to improve Tower’s facility in ways that support our distinctive program of excellence.

We will sustain Tower’s financial security through prudent planning.

Tower School’s Board of Trustees anticipates that this document will remain a “living document” and is committed to providing the leadership and resources to support the plan.

The Board of Trustees regularly meets to evaluate the school’s efforts to meet these goals.
