Mr. Peter H. York

Mr. York was hired in 2008 as Assistant Head of School and became Associate Head of School in 2010. Peter also teaches mathematics. Peter earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Harvard University and his Master's of Business Administration from James Madison University.
One can find Mr. York teaching math at odd times all during the day, even using card games to teach probability. Admitting that he is a complete geek about finance and economics, Peter finds that Excel spreadsheets are great toys.
When not working, Peter enjoys running for exercise and relaxation. He has been adopted by four cats: Spitty, Spotty, Spooky, and Louise. And though he finds he has unwittingly developed a real affection for them, they don't seem to share his love of math. They do, however, enjoy sitting on top of the papers he's trying to grade.
