With a dedication to education spanning close to two decades, Jeremy Gregersen joined the faculty of the Meadows School as an English teacher in 2005. He was named Dean of Studies of the Upper School in 2010; moved on to become Middle School Director in 2011; and was appointed to his current position as Head of School in 2014. As Middle School Director, Gregersen sought to foster a balanced environment of learning and personal growth by implementing a limitation on homework, focusing on quality over quantity, while still maintaining the rigorous academic standards of the School.
As Head of School, Gregersen has focused his efforts on expanding scholarship offerings: Between 10 and 15 percent of students at the Meadows School receive some sort of financial aid, with more than $7 million awarded in scholarships in the last five years. Currently, Gregersen is dedicated to crafting a strategic plan for the next decade and working on a self-study for the upcoming School accreditation.
Gregersen holds a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from the University of Michigan, a Master's in English from the University of Oregon, and a Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Utah. He is a graduate of the prestigious Klingenstein Center's Head of School Program and sits on the board of governors of Northwest Association of Independent Schools.
