The Harmony Montessori School Board of Trustees is committed to the preservation and implementation of the School’s mission. Its volunteer members are community members (parents and not) who share a belief in Montessori education and a passion for Harmony and all that makes it special. In any given year, our members may be parents or grandparents of current and former HMS students, educators, professionals, community leaders, CPAs, business owners, and healers. As a group, the Board is responsible for the hiring and evaluation of the Head of School, strategic planning, and the long-term financial stewardship and governance of the School. It provides leadership in all development and fundraising efforts as well. In short, the Board exists to ensure that Harmony Montessori School is viable to serve the children of the greater Portland community long into the future.
There are several committees of the Board, which include Finance; Personnel; Development; and Fundraising. Meetings are monthly, with additional meetings scheduled as needed. Committees make recommendations that provide insight and direction for Board governance decisions. The Board is always interested in receiving recommendations and applications for future trustee candidates. Please contact the Board Chair or the Head of School to learn more about the application process and serving to support the growth and institutional development of HMS.
