Head of School
Tamara Schurdak has officially assumed her role as Head of The Chestnut Hill School, and we are thrilled to have her on board. Tamara and her partner, Anne, arrived in Massachusetts the last week in June. Though they are still unpacking boxes, they are both excited to be in their new home.
“My vision of a great school is embodied at CHS,” Tamara shared with the faculty and staff over the gleeful shouts of summer campers. “The mission, with its focus on academic excellence, diversity, and community, makes this a remarkable school. There is an engagement here that is joyful and palpable. I’m so glad to be here.”
During these first few weeks on the job Tamara is focused on learning all things CHS. community. An important part of this process is to get to know our families, faculty, and staff, and hearing their stories.
Should you happen to be in the building, please stop by and say hello to our new Head of School.
