Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees at Holden High School supports the mission of the school and supports the staff in pursuing that mission. Concretely, the Board is responsible for:  1) discussing the goals for the year, 2) reviewing, approving and monitoring the annual budget, and 3) evaluating the heads of school. The Board is comprised of two co-directors, parents of Holden High School alumni, and long-term friends and supporters of the Holden Community.
