Forest Hills Public Schools announces some new additions and changes to our administrative team at Thornapple Elementary School, Ada Vista Elementary School, and Eastern High School.
Thornapple Elementary – Please help us welcome David Lyon to Thornapple Elementary as principal following the retirement of Greg Shubel. David comes to us from Gladiola Elementary in Wyoming where he served as principal. He brings with him 23 years of experience as an elementary teacher and has taught every grade level from first grade to fifth grade.
Ada Vista – Jesús Santillán will step away from his role as principal of Ada Vista for 2018-19 in order to focus on K-12 vertical alignment and systemic needs of our immersion programs. Patrick Stecco will step in to serve as interim principal for Ada Vista next school year. Patrick has served as an immersion teacher and our immersion instructional coach.
Eastern High School – Steve Harvey will conclude his role as principal of EHS this summer in order to provide support for important projects related to secondary redesign, flexible learning, concurrent and dual enrollment, and our growing need to establish more business partnerships and student internship opportunities. Steve will work out of Northern High School. The district is in the hiring process of a new high school principal for Eastern and will inform families of a new principal when the information becomes available.
