This school year, Kathlyne Snyder has taken on a new role as Assistant Principal at North High School following the retirements of Patricia Hugo and Dr. Daniel Krauz.
Ms. Snyder is a familiar face in the district, as she has been a member of the Great Neck Public Schools faculty for the past 24 years. Her new role as Assistant Principal at North High is her first administrative position in the district.

“I’m delighted and humbled to join the North High administrative team in the building I’ve worked for over 20 years,” says Ms. Snyder. “North High’s warm, vibrant, and collaborative spirit makes it a very special place for students and faculty alike. As an assistant principal, I will endeavor to support all members of our educational community as we work toward the achievement of our shared goals.”
