Murski, who has worked at the academy since 2005, will take over for John Hill.

The former head of high school has implemented several school-wide programs, including Olweus Bullying Prevention Program and STARRS, a program that focuses on character development. She also created a school-wide student activities program where students can connect in a small and safe environment.

Dallas Academy is confident that Ms. Murski will continue to provide a safe environment for our students to attain their highest level of academic, social and emotional achievement while offering hope to children and families impacted by learning differences,” Board of Trustees chairman Terrence Welch said in a statement.
