Greg John is the new principal at Starr King Elementary School in Potrero Hill. A former high school teacher, John has spent time working in education reform as well as the teaching arena; this is his first post as principal.
Starr King’s Academic Performance Index scores increased significantly in the last year and John has plans to increase those scores further, adding to the improvements that former Principal Rosenberg put in place. The new principal believes in Starr King’s faculty and told the Potrero View, “To get there, we have to get there together. All the pieces have to connect. Starr King is a joint effort – kids who connect, adults who feel their kids connecting – things start to generate their own reason to be.”
