Our Faculty and Staff
Everyone on our amazing EBI faculty and staff deeply values bilingualism, diversity, educational excellence, international mindedness and character. We are committed as a powerful team to doing our best each day to achieve our mission and provide an extraordinary education for our students.
Our Board of Trustees
The role of the EBI Board of Trustees is to support the school’s mission by ensuring the long-term health and sustainability of the school. The Board’s role is one of policy and not day-to-day administration. They are primarily responsible for setting EBI’s strategic plan, hiring and evaluating the head of school, and acting as the school’s fiduciary and financial stewards. Our trustees are volunteers who advocate on behalf of the school within their respective networks and communities.
Our Family and Friend Associations
The organizations at EBI most responsible for fostering community through organized activities are the EBI Parent Association (EBIPA) and the EBI Diversity Coalition. They are the center of family involvement at EBI and the key to the success of our school. These groups plan fundraisers, volunteer their time at school events and share in many fun activities. The members of the faculty and administration meet regularly with the leadership of these organizations, and the leaders of these organizations regularly interact with each other. This coordination, and their ongoing support, are essential for maintaining the vitality of EBI.
