Hyde School headmaster to step down
BATH — Don MacMillan, who has spent almost 30 years at Hyde School and the past five as headmaster, plans to leave his post at the end of this school year.
"I have appreciated the opportunity to provide leadership to the school during the past five years," he wrote this week to the school community. "Hyde School's unique approach to education, in which the teacher's and parent's growth is encouraged and is as essential as the student's growth, is what first attracted me to Hyde nearly 30 years ago and has kept me intrigued and involved all these years later."
Laura Gauld, a Hyde graduate, will move from Hyde's campus in Woodstock, Conn., to Bath to continue her position as executive director of Hyde's boarding schools, and will act as head of school. She taught and served as an administrator in Bath for several years before becoming head of the Woodstock campus in 2006.
