THE NEXT HEAD OF THE SAN FRANCISCO FRIENDS MIDDLE SCHOOL:

We are excited to announce that Lizzie Rogal will be joining the Friends community this summer as next head of the SFFS Middle School. Lizzie brings extensive experience in education and leadership, as well as a strong commitment to social justice, and we can't wait to officially welcome her to 250. You can read Mike and Pankti's full letter to the community about Lizzie's new role—and how everyone involved in the search knew she'd be a wonderful addition to our school—by clicking the button below. We look forward to celebrating Clarke and welcoming Lizzie!

THE SEARCH FOR THE NEXT HEAD OF OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL:

In October, Middle School Head and former Trustee Clarke Weatherspoon announced that he would be leaving SFFS at the end of the 2021–2022 school year to become the Head of School at The Waverly School in Pasadena, CA. This is a wonderful opportunity for Clarke, and we're thrilled for him as he and his family embark upon this new chapter in Southern California. Clarke's news, coming soon after Jennifer's announcement, means that we are beginning two important divisional head searches at SFFS in tandem, and we will be tracking our progress and updates on this front on this page. As we look to the future, we will be led by a search committee made up of faculty and staff members and clerked by Academic Dean Tracie Mastronicola P'30 & '30.

You can find the announcement of our Middle School Head search here.
