NYC’s famed LaGuardia High School taps alum as new principal
LaGuardia High School, New York City’s premier performing arts school, is getting a new principal after five months without a permanent leader. Deepak Marwah, an alum and former teacher at LaGuardia, is set to take the helm at the Upper West Side institution later this month, the school announced Friday.
Marwah most recently oversaw arts education for the New Rochelle school district. The appointment comes on the heels of a turbulent stretch at LaGuardia, which commands outsize attention because of its star-studded list of alumni and its global reputation as the inspiration for the movies and TV show Fame. The school has long attracted fierce debates over the appropriate balance between arts and academics.
