Greenwood Announces New Head of School

Caryl FrankenbergerGreenwood School’s Board of Trustees is very pleased to announce that Caryl Frankenberger, ED.M. will be joining The Greenwood School community as Head of School.

Caryl is a nationally known authority on learning disabilities and a greatly respected educational consultant and psychoeducational diagnostician. She speaks frequently at national forums promoting understanding and awareness of learning disabilities and has assisted numerous schools build and improve their programs to assist students who learn differently.

For the past 34 years Caryl has led FA Learning Solutions based in Branford, Connecticut. Her deep experience in the field and extensive country-wide network makes her an ideal leader for this stage of Greenwood’s journey.

Caryl is extremely familiar with the school’s history and culture. She taught here in 1980, helped numerous families find the school, and is a long-time member of the school’s advisory committee. Throughout the search process, Caryl’s passion for the school, its history, mission and, most important, our boys, shone through.

Her appointment comes as the result of a thorough and patient process to find the most qualified leader to build on the strong foundation built by Stewart Miller, our faculty and staff. This not only involved multiple interviews with the search committee, but meetings with faculty, staff and students. In the end, this was a community effort. In Caryl Frankenberger the Board and Search Committee are confident we have the leader Greenwood needs to continue moving forward.

Caryl will officially assume the position of Head of School on July 1st. However, she will be joining the school as Incoming Head of School on April 25 in order to work with Stewart to make the transition as smooth as possible, consult with faculty and staff, interact with Greenwood families, and reach out to educational consultants and other stakeholders.

Caryl has long been a part of the Greenwood community. Please join us in welcoming Caryl to her new role within our community.
