News about Serena Wilkie Gifford

Serena Wilkie Gifford announced her plans to step down as Tower's Head of School as of June of 2023. Ms. Gifford is a thoughtful, effective leader who cares deeply about Tower's mission and supporting a culture of belonging for students and families. We will miss Ms. Gifford's tremendous leadership and her joyful connections with students.

Nevertheless, as a 110-year-old institution, we are also a forward-looking community that embraces new perspectives and experiences. As such, we are thrilled to welcome Tower's 12th Head of School, Todd Eveleth, who officially takes the reins in July 2023.

Todd Eveleth, Tower’s Incoming Head of School

Effective July 1, 2023

It was with tremendous enthusiasm that the Board of Trustees announced the appointment of Todd Eveleth as Tower School’s 12th Head of School in its 110-year history.

Mr. Eveleth's appointment is the culmination of an invigorating, eight-month process in participation with our full community.

About Todd Eveleth

Todd will join us from The Nantucket New School, a Pre-K–8 school on Nantucket, where he serves as Head of School. Mr. Eveleth’s 24-year career as an educator and administrator is rooted in New England independent schools and boarding schools. Prior to his current headship, he served for 17 years at The Fessenden School in Newton, MA, in roles that ranged from English teacher, English Department Chair, Dean of Students, Upper School Division Head, Dorm Parent, and Coach. 

Todd is a dynamic leader who cherishes opportunities to create deep relationships within the community; he is known as engaging, warm and kind.  

The distinctive combination of Todd’s depth of experience in elementary and middle school education, and as a current Head of School makes him uniquely well-positioned to lead Tower School at this exciting time in our school’s trajectory.  

We look forward to welcoming the Eveleth family to our school and the greater Marblehead community.
