Head of School
Abby McCarty, BASIS Prescott Head of School, believes in building strong connections within the Prescott community. It’s vital, she says, that teachers form connections that build community and provide support. At the core — students, teachers, staff and families — work hard.
“We grow. We solve problems. We organize. We tackle the tough things and learn from it,” Abby says. “We juggle numerous tasks. We have fun. We embrace new things. We explore with open minds.”
As a leader, she says it is important she not only ask this of others, but also lead by example. While her broad scope of experience in education, as well as being a parent, has shaped her as an educator and leader, she says it is vital to continually grow in both areas. In education, we must be innovators to ensure that we continually serve our families and students well.
