Dean of Students

The role of the CPS Dean of Students is pivotal within the school's academic administration. This individual is entrusted with the oversight of the non-academic facets of student life, including student conduct, discipline, social-emotional well-being, and overall welfare. Their contribution is essential to cultivating a positive and supportive school environment. Responsibilities encompass addressing student concerns, fostering student engagement, and ensuring adherence to CPS policies.

Functioning as a crucial link between students, faculty, and administration, the Dean of Students works diligently to enhance the overall student experience, both within and beyond the classroom. At Commonwealth-Parkville School, our Deans prioritize the establishment of an inclusive, safe, and respectful atmosphere. Their dedication is directed toward encouraging personal growth and academic success among our student body.
