Dr. Stephen Kutno
Head of School
A seasoned educator with over 30 years of experience and a deep personal connection to Muss, Dr. Kutno is a welcome addition who will take the school to new heights.
Dr. Kutno started his career as a classroom teacher before transitioning to senior roles in publishing and educational technologies. For nearly 20 years, he has been consulting directly with school systems and NGOs on developing and implementing growth plans. Prior to making aliyah (immigration to Israel) and opening his own consulting practice, Kutno held senior leadership roles with Public Consulting Group, Pearson, Kaplan, Scholastic, and The Princeton Review. In addition, he was a founding board member of a private egalitarian Jewish day school and served as a chairperson for his synagogue’s teen engagement committee.
In addition to his robust professional experience, Dr. Kutno has a personal connection to Muss. His son attended the school in 2015, and Kutno was blown away at the positive impact Muss had on him. Now, 17 years later, Kutno looks forward to ensuring that the next generation of students continues to enjoy the life-changing experience his son had.
