Executive Director (Head of School) Search

Three Tree Montessori School


Triangle Associates and Heads Up Educational Leadership are pleased to lead the search for the next Head of School at Three Tree Montessori School in Burien, WA (Seattle Area). We placed an interim head of school for 2019-20 and are now seeking a permanent head for July 2020 and beyond.


With enrollment of more than 200 students, Three Tree is a private, independent PS-6 school guided by the principles and pedagogy of Dr. Maria Montessori. Guided by these teachings, Three Tree provides education for life and is dedicated to helping all children develop into confident, self-motivated, and responsible global citizens. The school is thriving by focusing on a simple mission of transforming the world one child at a time and it will soon grow to include an adolescent program through Grade 8.


A background in AMI Montessori is preferred for the permanent position, but we are accepting applications from all qualified leadership candidates.


Marc Frankel and Judy Schechtman from Triangle/Heads Up, and Kathy Minardi from Whole School Leadership are working with the Three Tree Board of Trustees to conduct this search. The interim position has a start date of July or August 2019, and the permanent position begins in July 2020.
