Head of School Welcome
Welcome to Pine Cobble School, a vibrant independent school and a truly exceptional community. At Pine Cobble, we often say that a good beginning never ends. My own beginning at Pine Cobble began almost three decades ago. I was a recent graduate of Williams College, thrilled to teach my very first class. Since that day, I have taught in every division of the school, served in a number of administrative roles, coached a generation of students, and watched my own three children thrive here.
I assure you: this is a rare place. While at Pine Cobble, your child will develop an ability to thrive in dynamic settings, the capacity to advocate for him/herself and others, the vision to make the most of resources and opportunities, and deep roots that offer a lifetime of inner strength. Your child will learn to challenge him/herself, become comfortable taking healthy risks, develop an ethic of hard work and critical thinking, and start down the path toward an honest, purposeful life.
He or she will also laugh…a lot. He/she will make lifelong friends, cheer for school mates of every age, participate enthusiastically in school-wide events, and understand him/herself to be an integral and valued part of a one-of-a-kind community. Here, hard work goes hand-in-hand with great fun, and excellence goes hand-in-hand with kindness.
I’m delighted to invite you to explore Pine Cobble for all it can offer.
