BOARD OF DIRECTORS

THE STUDIO SCHOOL IS A TEACHER FOUNDED AND TEACHER POWERED SCHOOL!

What began with a group of teachers gathering at the library
on Saturday mornings for some targeted professional development discussions, has grown over the past three and a half years to become a dynamic, exciting educational organization aiming to serve the Twin Cities communities in many ways.

Collectively, our Board Members have over 100 years of teaching, volunteer and professional experience, and we're dedicated to bringing this expertise into The Studio School to serve all students! Learn more below about all that our awesome board brings to the table to successfully serve students and deliver our mission.
