Superintendent of Schools Dr. Van W. Riley announced Friday that Assistant Principal Mark Friese will be the new principal of SHS beginning July 1. Stonington High's current principal, Stephen Murphy, is retiring in June after 19 years.

“Mark Friese is an outstanding match for the needs of Stonington High School. He brings a strong academic background in math, science and technology to complement his collaborative, student-centered style," Riley said in a press release.

“We were looking for a forward-thinking, enthusiastic leader who will bring together parents, teachers and students to move the school forward. Mark will expand on the positive aspects of the school and make changes where necessary.”
