Heritage leadership is Christ centered and focused on the development of the school at both the board of governors level and the administration level. All members of the board of governors are appointed by the different Christian mission organizations that own and operate the school. The board’s main focus is on developing policies that will ensure the smooth operation of the school based on biblical principles and guiding the overall development of the school. The day-to-day operation of the school is the responsibility of the Head of School and the admin team. The Head of school reports to the board of governors and participates in board meetings with members of the admin team.
