"I cannot think of anyone better than Mary Wood to follow in the footsteps of Ms. Colardi at Heights," said Superintendent Allison Brown about Ms. Wood's appointment by the Board of Education on March 7. "Her previous tenure at Heights, her extensive background in elementary education and special education, and her long experience in Roslyn make her uniquely qualified for this leadership position. With this appointment, we can all be confident that the wonderful, nurturing environment that we all value at the Heights School will be in excellent hands in the years ahead."
