Head of School Search

Interim Head Search

The French Immersion School of Washington (FISW) and the Board of Directors seek an Interim Head of School (Head).  As the chief executive officer of the school, the Head is charged with the overall responsibility for the school. The Head will execute the stated mission and vision of the school, manage faculty and staff (with the assistance of the Senior Administrative Team) and ensure the financial health of the institution.
