Chadwick School Announces Jessica S. Donovan as its 14th Head of School, Effective July 1, 2023.

Today the Roessler-Chadwick Foundation Board of Trustees announced the appointment of Jessica S. Donovan as Chadwick's next Head of School.

Jessica is currently Head of School at Sheridan School, in Washington, D.C., and has spent more than 23 years working in schools as a teacher and school leader, including roles as Division Director, Assistant Head of School and Head of School. Her work at Sheridan included implementing data-driven curriculum overhauls; leading renovations at both the city and mountain campuses; building a culture of philanthropy; increasing the diversity of faculty, staff and families; and overseeing the strategic plan, while ensuring that all community members have a sense of belonging. 

“I am so pleased and honored to be named the next Head of School at Chadwick School. From the moment I walked on campus, I could see that Chadwick is special. I'm excited to join your community of inspired educators, joyful students and engaged families," Donovan shared. "Leading a school is a marathon, not a sprint, and I'm excited to run this marathon with you. Together, we will build on Chadwick's strong and healthy foundation."

We think you're special, too, Jessica! Welcome to Chadwick!
