The Ross School has named a new head of school to replace the departing Michele Claeys, who leaves at the end of the school year for a new job as associate head of the Norwood School in Bethesda, Md.
Dr. Gregg W.M. Maloberti will step in as interim head of school, with a term beginning on July 1 and lasting for two years.
Dr. Maloberti’s appointment by the Ross Institute Board of Trustees and the Ross School Board of Overseers is the result of a search performed in conjunction with a search committee comprised of faculty, staff, parents, and administrators.
Currently Dr. Maloberti has been employed at The Lawrenceville School in New Jersey for over a dozen years, where he is the dean of admission and financial aid. He will work closely with Ms. Claeys this spring to assure a smooth transition.
“We are very pleased that Dr. Maloberti has accepted our offer to join the Ross community as interim head of school,” said Ross’s founder, Courtney Sale Ross, in a release. “His specific areas of expertise — organizational leadership, student recruitment and retention, development, and deep experience with the international community — will insure that Ross continues to be a leader in global education and develops in its next decade as a financially sustainable and highly competitive independent day and boarding school.”
