The Stokes School Board of Trustees play an integral part in the Stokes mission, and is made up of a diverse group of parents, former students, and some of D.C.’s most dedicated leaders in education, government, business and the arts.


The Board of Trustees is responsible for ensuring that the programs Stokes implements are consistent with the school’s mission. Throughout the year, the Board reviews educational programs, chartering authority policy, legislative activity, and daily life at Stokes, ensuring that our mission statement stays relevant and up-to-date.


The Board also works tirelessly to spread the word about Stokes, communicating the school’s mission and programs to the public.
