Greenhills head of school resigns to take new job
Greenhills School’s Peter Fayroian will head for the hills of western Massachusetts at the end of the 2011-2012 academic year.
“My love of Greenhills will be as deep and abiding as that of the seniors with whom I'm graduating this year,” Fayroian said in a press release about leaving.
“Like them, I have learned and benefited from superb educators, committed parents, a dedicated board of trustees, a wonderful administrative staff and an environment that produces some of the greatest kids with whom I have ever worked.”
The search for Fayroian’s replacement has begun. The Board of Trustees recently hired a search consultant, Stephen DiCicco of Education Directions Inc., to assist in its efforts.
A 10-member search committee also will begin work after class resumes in January. The committee intends to recommend a candidate to the board by the end of March.
The school also is looking for six to 10 Greenhills parents to join its advisory committee. The committee's first duty will be to meet with DiCicco the week of Jan. 9.
Board President Kevin Tremper said in a letter last week to the Greenhills community that Fayroian led the school “with vision, compassion and an unwavering commitment to provide an excellent education for young people.”
He added Fayroian helped the school redesign its teaching model; create more “robust” admissions and development offices; enhance its forensics program and counseling services; implement a Chinese program, the Learning Center and an upper level lacrosse team; and grew the school’s transportation and maintenance staff.
