The school trustees set the broad policy for the direction of the school by serving three-year terms on the school board. The seven trustees provide leadership and direction to the school's administrators and make important decisions on a wide array of topics, including strategic planning, curriculum, technology, personnel issues, finance, construction, facilities, and the student body.
Elected by the Bronxville community, each trustee plays a vital role in the continued excellence of the school.
The NPC was formed in 1936 to foster the election of trustees of The Bronxville School on a non-partisan basis. The NPC, which consists of three elected representatives from each of Bronxville's seven election districts, solicits qualified residents who are interested in serving as school trustee and nominates a slate of candidates to run in the school-district election each May.
