English High headmaster to leave troubled school

The headmaster at the long-troubled English High School in Jamaica Plain plans to leave her post as the school is ramping up efforts to prevent a state takeover.

Ligia Noriega-Murphy, appointed with much fanfare last year as the school’s first female headmaster, will return to School Department headquarters, where she will resume working with high schools across the city, said Superintendent Carol R. Johnson.
