Messinger takes helm at Hyla

Suzanne Messinger has been named the next Head of School at Hyla Middle School.

Messinger will succeed Paul Carroll, who served as Interim Head of School for the past year.

Messinger takes on her new role beginning July 1.

“Suzanne’s energy, passion for innovation, and collaborative leadership style are exactly what we wanted,” said Brenda Hall, president of the Hyla Board of Directors.

Messinger comes to Hyla with a rich background in school leadership, community building and teaching, school officials said. She brings experience with progressive, independent schools and also with implementing innovation in more traditional settings.

Messinger was drawn to Hyla because “it’s mission extends far beyond the excellence of the academic experience,” she said.

“Hyla is a place where students feel known, and because of that they express voice and creativity with confidence,” Messinger added.

Messinger will take the helm as the school enters its 25th year.
