Board of Trustees

Like other independent schools, The New School is governed by an independent, self-perpetuating Board of Trustees. The President of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) states in the NAIS Trustee Handbook that what distinguishes independent schools from other schools is that independent schools govern themselves via a self-perpetuating board of trustees and finance themselves by setting tuition and raising money.
