  • Assistant Principal Dr. Peter Rufa

    Veteran Administrator is Named OBHS Assistant Principal

    Veteran educator Dr. Peter Rufa is passionate about driving students to success. As Oyster Bay High School’s new Assistant Principal for grades 10-12, that sentiment fuels his goals and expectations as he moves forward in his new role.

    “I am working towards getting to know more students in the high school and supporting them in academic and overall success,” Dr. Rufa said.

    An educational leader in the District for six years, Dr. Rufa most recently served as the K-12 Supervisor of Fine and Performing Arts. In that role, he not only led the District’s high-performing fine arts and music program, but worked to develop and implement a facilities plan for the creation of the voter-approved Fine and Performing Arts Wing at Oyster Bay High School.
