Our leadership team is composed of our Principal and Vice Principal (Academics) as well as the School Committee, consisting of currently nine members. They work in tandem to uphold our mission of immersing students from diverse ethnic and linguistic backgrounds in the cultures of German speaking countries, thereby fostering their appreciation of global citizenship

Academic Leadership

The Principal leads the faculty at the German Saturday School Boston and is responsible for developing and overseeing the curriculum. She is supported by the Vice Principal.

School Committee

Our all-volunteer School Committee sets forth the school mission and policies, and manages all aspects of its operations. It reports regularly to its authorizing body, the Boylston Schul-Verein in Walpole, MA.

School Committee members are typically parents of students and can remain on the committee for a maximum of two terms of three years each. While the committee collectively works together on general school policies, each committee member has been assigned to specific work areas.
