Head of School Search

Dear Tilton Community,

The strength of Tilton School is embedded within the entire school community.  As a member of the Board of Trustees, I am honored with the responsibility of chairing the Search Committee to appoint Tilton’s next Head of School. 

The Search Committee has been charged to conduct a comprehensive, inclusive, transparent process that invites and considers the perspectives of all members of our community in important aspects of the search process. The Trustees and members of the Search Committee are equally required to maintain the necessary confidentiality required for all concerned.  As Chair, I am committed to frequent and timely communication. I invite insights, feedback, and nominations from the community through direct, private communication with me as Chair.

We are grateful to the Saliba family for their years of service to Tilton.  Peter has led with integrity and effectiveness, positioning Tilton for ongoing success. The process of searching for a new Head inspires our school to reflect on our future needs and the skills, qualifications, and personal qualities desired in our next Head of School.  We are confident our search will yield capable leaders to meet the diverse needs of Tilton in the years to come. The Board will move quickly, and every effort will be made to identify a shortlist of highly qualified candidates who can join the school in the 2020 school year.

On behalf of all of Tilton School, the Trustees, the leadership team, faculty, and staff are fully committed to making the next eight months at Tilton the very best they can be.  

In the coming weeks, we will establish a connection to the community on the Tilton School website that will keep you apprised of our progress.  Please feel free to contact me directly if I can answer any questions you may have.  

Very Truly Yours,

Rob Patten ‘89

Search Committee Chair
