"The opportunity to continue my professional journey as an educational leader at a school I love is a dream come true. Both as a parent and an educator, I know that Evergreen is an amazing institution with a unique mission and caring community; I am humbled and excited by the opportunity to lead this school."

Meet Halsey Bell, Our New Head of School

 
We are pleased to announce that Halsey Bell has become The Evergreen School's fifth head of school, effective July 1, 2020.

Halsey is a dedicated and thoughtful administrator who has exemplary leadership experience across administration, academics and co-curricular realms. He served as Evergreen's upper division head for seven years. In that role, he worked closely with faculty to continually refine, innovate and provide the best programming and curriculum to meet the needs of our highly capable population of students. He also collaborated extensively with the Board of Trustees on numerous committees from Finance and Facilities to Mission & Strategy.

Prior to coming to Evergreen, Halsey spent 13 years at Seattle Academy of Arts and Sciences in various roles:
 
  • Assistant Head of Middle School
  • Head of Outdoor and International Travel Program
  • Dean of Students Upper School
  • History Teacher and Department Chair
He also taught high school history in independent day and boarding schools before moving to Seattle. 

Halsey was a member of Giddens School, Board of Trustees for five years, serving on the Executive and Finance Committees and chairing the Facilities Committee. He is currently a member of Seattle Academy's Risk Management Subcommittee. In his spare time, Halsey serves as vice president of the Seattle Youth Lacrosse Club Board and coaches lacrosse for Seattle Wolfpack.

Finally, Halsey knows our community from more than an administrative perspective—he and his wife are the proud parents of a current Evergreen student and a recent alum. We are thrilled to have Halsey at the helm in 2020.
