McGee named NHS Principal

It was announced at Tuesday's board meeting that Rob McGee has been named the new principal of Neshaminy High School. If you aren't familiar with Dr. McGee's background, here are a few highlights:

Dr. McGee joined the Neshaminy High School Administrative Team in February 2008 as the Assistant Principal in charge of Academic Affairs, Scheduling and Student Records. Prior to coming to Neshaminy High School, Dr. McGee worked in the District Curriculum & Instruction Department as a Middle Level Instructional Math Coach and Assessment Data Overseer. Previously, he spent 17 years at Sandburg Middle School as a Math Teacher and Department Chairman.

A Levittown Native, McGee graduated from Neshaminy High School in 1983. He later attended Shippensburg University where he earned his undergraduate degree in Education (1987), followed by a Masters from Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science (1991), and a Ph.D. from Drexel University (2006).

On a personal note, I've gotten to know Dr. McGee over the past few years and have found him to be an incredible talent. He has a passion for education, good business sense, and most important of all, he really cares about the students. In what I would consider to be a successful year, naming Rob McGee as NHS Principal may be our best accomplishment of all.

Congratulations and good luck, Dr. McGee!

Excellent, excellent choice for principal at Neshaminy High School! He's one of the high school's best assets and I look forward to the great things coming from his leadership. As a high school parent this is the best news I've heard coming out of this very, very gloomy school year.

Everyone at the high school is rejoicing in the decision. Everyone, that is, except for the mice!
