Elmwood Appoints New Head of School

6/5/19—The Elmwood School Board of Governors recently announced the appointment of James Whitehouse as the new Head of School, beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.

Whitehouse has been Elmwood’s Deputy Head of the Middle and Senior Schools since 2012 and has had a profoundly influential tenure. Previously, he was an Assistant Head at Seven Kings High School in London, one of the top twelve state schools in the U.K.

Whitehouse remarked, “Since the day I joined Elmwood, I have been extremely grateful to work in such an innovative and collaborative school community surrounded by a family of learners… I am excited to work alongside our board, staff, students, and parents to fulfill our commitment to our strategic pillars focusing on academics, the whole girl, our community, faculty, and sustainability. It is, however, our students who are the most important to me as I take on this exciting role. The girls make Elmwood the unique and special place it is today, and my commitment is to them and the future that we will create together.”
