Swampscott principal picked to lead Marblehead High


Marblehead High is just starting its accreditation process with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, something that Swampscott High has been undergoing for the past three years. Millington also has experience with rescheduling, as he revamped the schedule for Swampscott High. He is also knowledgeable about new X2/Aspen Student Management System that Marblehead is rolling out this spring.

As a former science teacher, Maass said Millington has a strong curriculum background. Millington was the head of the science department in Georgetown.

Maass said that during his visit to Swampscott High, he met with students and staff and found that students “felt comfortable talking to him. That kind of respect with students is really important in a high school.”

This is not the first time that a Swampscott High principal has made the jump to Marblehead.

In 2010, Millington replaced former Swampscott High Principal Brian Salzer, who left to take a job as business manager in Marblehead. He has since left to become superintendent in Northampton.
