I am thrilled to be joining the community as your incoming Head of School in July. The Board of Trustees has made it a priority to enable me to hire a Principal to support the faculty and ongoing development of the curriculum. This is especially important given that we will be going through our first accreditation with California Association of Independent Schools and reaccreditation by Western Association of Schools and Colleges this coming year.
I am very pleased to let you know that I have already met with Matt Poynter and that he has accepted this new position of Principal. I know that many of you had the opportunity to meet Matt during the Head of School search process. Matt, a former Stanbridge teacher, brings his unique knowledge of Stanbridge and its student population as well as his recent experience as Director of Education at Oak Hill School to this new role.
I am grateful to the Board of Trustees for their wisdom and support in creating this position and allowing me to hire Stanbridge Academy’s first Principal now, so that we can both hit the ground running together in July.
