Goncalves named North Andover Middle School principal

The North Andover School Department has announced that Jorge Goncalves, principal of McCall Middle School in Winchester since 2011, has been selected as the next principal of North Andover Middle School. He will replace retiring principal Joan McQuade. Goncalves began his career in Framingham as a middle school English and English language teacher and football coach. He later served as assistant principal at the Briscoe Middle School in Beverly. “During the interview process, Jorge impressed us with his energy, understanding, and appreciation for middle school, and his ability to reflect on and learn from challenges,” Superintendent Jennifer Price and Assistant Superintendent Gregg Gilligan said in a prepared statement. “We are both confident that he will be an excellent addition to the North Andover leadership team.”
