As drivers of school culture, the Dean of Students plays a vital role in our schools. The Dean’s job entails ensuring that all of our classrooms have strong behavior and culture to enable rigorous and engaging academic instruction to thrive. Deans help ALL of our students succeed—even those who struggle to give their best.
