Greg Orpen
Head of School, x3141

After graduating from Trinity College (B.S. in Biology) and the Harvard Graduate School of Education (M.Ed. in Teaching & Learning), Greg came to Innovation Academy in the summer of 2000. Since that time he has taught at both the middle and high school, coordinated our school’s Systems Thinking program, and was a founding teacher of IACS’s high school expansion. From 2008-2014 he served as High School Principal. Currently, Greg is working towards his Ed.D at UMass Lowell’s Leadership in Schooling program while he serves as Head of School at IACS. His favorite student-centered experiences at IACS have been advising at every grade level, teaching science, and sharing his diminished athletic skills.
