NORWALK, Conn. Norwalk High School will be getting a makeover next year, including a new principal, Reginald Roberts. The Yale- and Harvard-trained educator most recently served as assistant principal of Westhill High in Stamford. He takes his new position in Norwalk July 2. Among other strengths, Roberts said, Norwalk High has a great arts program.
I live two streets over, so in the summer I hear their bands play, he said.So far, he doesn't have any special events planned for the next school year, but said that there are some greats ones in place already.I'm looking forward to diving into what's already happening and making the most of it, he said.As for the looming budget cuts within Norwalk schools, Reginald said he doesn't think everything is quite so final, and that regardless, the kids will still be put first.No matter who's cut, people will still roll up their sleeves and do a great job, Roberts said.Roberts earned a B.A. in history from Yale University in 1994 and a master's in education, focusing on human development and psychology, from Harvard a year later, according to his resume.
Norwalk High School serves 1,400 students from diverse cultural backgrounds, with Hispanic being the most common identity, Roberts said.
