Head of School Search
In March 2018, Head of School Brenda Mizel announced that she will be retiring at the end of the 2018-2019 school year. Mrs. Mizel came to MMS in 2011, and during her tenure, oversaw a $4 million capital campaign and a year-long construction process expanding the school to combine with the building next door. The renovation was the school’s first major facility project since moving to its current site in 1996.
In preparation for Mrs. Mizel’s departure, the school’s Board of Trustees has established a Search Committee composed of parent trustees and faculty/staff members to steward the process for selecting the next Head of School. The group is excited to find new leadership who will embrace MMS’ legacy while steering the school through the next phase of its evolution.
