Open House At Inter-American

I got an email from Inter-American saying that they're having an open house on Thursday (tomorrow). This is probably something they do every year, but it made me wonder how the school was doing in its new location and with its new(ish) principal. I remember that they had to change locations a couple of years ago and did a big search for a new principal around the same time. Anyone got an update? Details on the update below the jump:
