About Carol Maoz
Carol Maoz began her duties as Foote's eighth Head of School on July 1, 2009. She came to Foote School from Greenwich Country Day School, where she served as Upper School Head for 11 years. At Greenwich Country Day, Carol was known for hiring, mentoring and developing an extraordinary faculty, for curriculum enhancement, and for successful integration of technology in support of the program.
During her tenure as division head, Carol remained directly connected to the classroom by team-teaching Algebra and continuing to serve as a student advisor. She was effective in promoting inclusiveness through a well-established Diversity Awareness and Leadership Program and in revitalizing parent communications, in part through her Open Door policy and practice.
Carol holds a BA in Elementary Education from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and a M.Ed in Administration and Strategic Planning from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. From 1993 to 1997, she was Junior School Principal at the Munich International School in Germany. Prior to that she was Middle School Assistant Principal at the American International School in Israel (1986-1993). Remarkably, Carol has taught students in every grade from first through ninth.
Welcome from the Head of School
At Foote School, learning and teaching are more than the mere enjoyment of collecting and sharing facts; learning is an active experience for all members of our community. Foote values critical thinking and the hands-on opportunity to learn by doing that is the hallmark of experiential learning. We see our students as able teachers and our adults as life-long students. Our faculty is dedicated to learning how children learn and developing age appropriate curriculum that reflects this understanding of pedagogy.
Since 1916, Foote School has cultivated an atmosphere of mutual consideration and respect through close relationships among teachers, students, and parents. We emphasize cooperative effort, accountability for one’s actions, the value of service learning and a strong commitment to building a multicultural community.
I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our history, mission, philosophy, and practices. Welcome to The Foote School!
