Harbor Day School has a new head of school, according to a statement.
Daniel Greenwood, who had been assistant head of school and director of middle school at Pasadena’s Chandler School, became Harbor Day’s head today, according to the statement. The school’s board of trustees selected him after a comprehensive nationwide search.
“The Trustees were impressed by Dr. Greenwood’s intelligence, warmth, character, dedication, and belief in the mission of Harbor Day School and are confident that he has the talents to lead the school with passion and vision,” said Scott Shean, president of Harbor Day School’s Board of Trustees, in a statement.
Greenwood earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of New Hampshire, where he graduated with Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude honors. He earned Master of Education and Doctor of Education degrees from the University of Virginia.
“He has a strong background in the integration of technology into curriculum and has been a speaker, presenter, and published author on this topic,” the statement said. “Some of his significant accomplishments at Chandler include implementing a Middle School laptop program, helping to design and supervise construction of a new Middle School building on the site of the old building, originating a ‘buddy’ program to better integrate Chandler’s Middle School and Lower School students, and working closely with students and parents to place graduates in competitive area high schools.”
“I can’t wait to join the Harbor Day School community,” Greenwood said in a statement. “The school clearly lives up to its mission of being family-centered and well-balanced, as well as offering a nurturing environment.”
Harbor Day is a private school for kindergarten through eighth grade located at 3443 Pacific View Drive.
