Dr. Corda said, “Healy has a strong background in secondary education having served as an assistant principal at Western Middle School for four years and as a teacher and administrator at the high school for nine years. He has a clear vision with a student-first focus for the future of Central Middle School, which aligns well with the District’s Strategic Plan.”

The CMS community has been welcoming and supportive since the moment I joined as interim principal this past August.

Healy was appointed as Central Middle School principal from among many highly qualified candidates after a comprehensive process, which included stakeholder involvement to develop the qualities desired in a new principal, widespread recruitment efforts, an intensive screening process to match the stakeholder profile, and multiple interviews. The initial interview committee included District administrators, Central Middle School staff and parent representatives, and leadership representatives from the Greenwich teacher and administrator bargaining units and PTA Council.
