Berea-Midpark Middle School Appointed
Dear School Community,
I am pleased to announce that the Board of Education appointed Nick Discenza as principal for Berea-Midpark Middle School during its April 30 meeting.
Following an extensive interview process, Nick rose as the top candidate above a highly competitive group of professional educators. He joins the Berea City School District from Parma City Schools, where he is currently principal at Shiloh Middle School. He has also served on the board of the Ohio Middle Level Association as a representative of the northeast for the past 5 years.
Prior to his 6 years serving as a principal, he held the position of intern administrator at Hillside Middle School in Parma and assistant principal at Willowick Middle School in the Willoughby-Eastlake City Schools. Nick taught 7th and 8th grade social studies at Heskett Middle School in Bedford and 7th grade social studies at Shiloh Middle School in Parma. He and his wife Allison, a 7th grade math teacher at Brecksville-Broadview Heights, have two children, Michael and Lydia.
Nick is a leader who is highly effective at improving teaching and learning, and focused on the growth of students and staff. He will greatly enhance the district's transition to Berea-Midpark Middle School.
