“All of the finalist candidates were of a high quality and each had positive attributes that could help our school but to witness the building level of energy and excitement that gathered over the two days Binney was here, was a wonderful thing to observe,” shared Assistant Head of School and Search Committee member Nathan Washer.
Caffrey comes to The Pine School from The Bishop’s School in La Jolla, CA where she has worked for a combined 15 years, most recently as Dean of Studies holding the Oliver Family Chair in Educational Leadership. She has also held the positions of Director of Financial Aid and Dean of Student Life as well as teaching mathematics and economics. Caffrey earned her Master of Arts in Economics from the University of California and holds her Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from Williams College.
“Bringing Binney on as our new Head of School is sure to further the positive momentum that has been built in establishing The Pine School as one of the finest independent schools in the state,” summed up Board President and Search Committee Head Debbie Textor.
