Our Principal and Assistant Principals
Barbara Morse, Ed.D.

Previous to teaching, she was a developer of computer information systems for a bank in New Hampshire, worked for a tax preparation firm, and was the Executive Director for Laymen in North Kingstown Schools/Business Education Partnerships.
