School Committee

The School Committee serves the purpose of what other schools call the Board of Trustees. The committee is made up of Quaker Meeting members, parents, a student, the director (ex officio), and community members. Because MFS is under the care of the Meeting, half of the School Committee must be Quaker. Several sub-committees and working groups, such as Finance, Financial Aid and Fundraising, report to the School Committee.
