The IBSC Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that David Armstrong will assume the role of Executive Director of the IBSC in July of 2015. David has been deeply involved in boys’ schools as the Headmaster of the Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland these past 15 years, and as a trustee of the IBSC.

Read the complete announcement here.
The IBSC received “top billing” in a special Sunday section of the New York Times. In the Times' SUNDAY DIALOGUE -- How to Educate Boys, Joe Cox wrote a response to an earlier op-ed piece which discussed if and how schools should address the differences in how boys and girls learn. The IBSC is pleased to have been represented in this discussion, and to have been chosen among thousands of other submissions received by the NYT Editorial Department. We encourage your continued participation in the dialog on single-gender education.
