New principal named for 2017-18

The City School District of Albany Board of Education has appointed John C. Powell, an experienced elementary administrator and teacher, as the new principal at Montessori Magnet School. Powell will take over at the end of the current school year for Malik Jones, who will begin his new role as a co-principal at the district's new middle school at 50 North Lark St.

 

Powell came to the district last fall as an assistant principal at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School. Prior to that, he spent 16 years in the Stillwater Central School District, the majority of it at the elementary level.

 

He began his career in Stillwater as an elementary teacher, and advanced to serve as an elementary assistant principal and later principal of Stillwater Elementary School. The school, and the district in general, experienced strong gains in student performance during his time as principal.

 

He began his professional career as a special education teacher in South Glens Falls and at the Wildwood School in Latham. Powell is certified as a school building leader, a special education teacher and an elementary teacher. Please welcome him to our school community when you have an opportunity.

 

About Montessori Magnet School

One of three magnet schools in the City School District of Albany, the mission of Montessori Magnet School is to create and support the development of a responsible, culturally diverse community of individual learners through diligent work in and adherence to the Montessori philosophy and method. The school began in 1993 and for 12 years was located in the former Cathedral Academy near Lincoln Park. In 2005, the school moved to its current home -- a new building in Westland Hills equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and technology.

 

For more information about the magnet program and application process, please contact the district's Magnet Office at 475-6551.
