School Leadership

Far more than buildings and resources and campus grounds, Gilman is people. Eager and motivated students, skilled and caring faculty, and dedicated administrators enable the School to fulfill its mission of educating boys in mind, body, and spirit.


Gilman's administrative team provides the vision, leadership, and day-to-day management required to keep Gilman a vibrant, dynamic, educational community. Like most who work at Gilman, they wear many hats, also serving as teachers, coaches, and counselors.
