Tina Yu Wilson, who brings nearly 20 years of experience in public education in Westchester and New York City, was appointed principal of Rye Neck High School, effective July 1.

She joins Rye Neck from the Hendrick Hudson Central School District, where she currently serves as assistant principal. During her tenure there, Wilson has held a number of positions: supervising administrator of the Math and Science departments, district delegate for Project Lead the Way programs, and co-facilitator of the implementation of the Teacher is the Core initiative.

Before that, Wilson worked for the New York City Department of Education, as an assistant principal and as a middle and high school Science and Math teacher.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in Biology and a master’s degree in Secondary Education from Long Island University. She is currently working toward a Ph.D. in Education from Manhattanville College.

Rye Neck Superintendent of Schools Dr. Barbara Ferraro says, “Tina Wilson’s leadership will quickly prove an asset to the High School. She is an experienced and highly effective administrator who understands the importance of creating and maintaining a school culture of inquiry, building positive relationships with students, providing opportunities for professional collaboration and professional growth for teachers, and engaging all stakeholders through clear communication and accountability.”
