Head of Prestigious Peddie School to Retire
The president of New Jersey's prestigious Peddie School is retiring.
The school announced Friday that Head of School John Green will retire after the 2012-13 academic year.
Green has served since September 2001 as Peddie's 15th head of school.
School officials lauded Green's tenure, saying Peddie invested nearly $65 million in major facilities projects and in recruitment, professional development, and the retention of faculty as a result of a strategic plan he enacted.
The school says Green previously held faculty positions at several private schools, including St. Paul's School, Western Reserve Academy and the Fessenden School.
The Hightstown-based day and boarding school has 550 high school students. It was founded in 1864.
