One of the greatest strengths of The Putney School over the years has been its ability to attract powerful intellects and passionate teachers to the faculty. In the early days, the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of the progressive movement drew a wide range of educators, several of whom went on to found other progressive schools. In today’s educational world, public school teachers are contending with state-mandated tests and the independent school world is largely consumed with teaching to the APs. Teachers are drawn to Putney because they can teach students how to ask good questions rather than just answer them, because they can design their curriculum in collaboration with their colleagues and because we believe that education is the result of everything we do with students, in and out of the classroom.

These faculty and staff profiles give a glimpse of the amazing breadth and wealth of talent at Putney. For a complete list of Putney faculty, staff and leadership, visit our Staff & Faculty Directory
