Nathan Marting has been named as the next principal of Burlington High School.

Marting will take on the role on July 1 following the retirement of current principal Monica Myers.

“We’re excited to have Nathan continue as a leader for us in the Burlington Community School District,” Superintendent Robert Scott said. “His many years of administrative experience are sure to continue to be a benefit to our students.”

Marting has worked in education for more than 20 years, the most recent two of which have been spent with BCSD.

He was an associate principal at BHS for one year before accepting the position of principal of Edward Stone Middle School, where he will remain through the end of the school year.

Marting began his career in education as a high school agriculture teacher and Future Farmers of America advisor in the Maquoketa Valley School District. Five years later, after receiving his principal endorsement from Viterbo University, he took on the role of high school principal at Midland Community School District.

He went on to get his superintendent licensure from the University of Northern Iowa and served as Midland’s superintendent before taking on the same role for the Jesup Community School District. He remained the Jesup superintendent for 13 years before joining the Burlington Community School District in 2022.

“I had always wanted to be in a larger school. Burlington High School itself was almost the same size as the largest district size I’d been in,” Marting said, explaining being able to work with the high and middle schools’ administrative teams has allowed him to better understand how larger schools operate.

Marting said he has enjoyed the energy, excitement and enthusiasm of Ed Stone, and he looks forward to seeing his current students in the years to come at the high school.

“I look forward to continuing the great work that has been in place the last couple years and working with the administrative team and staff to identify areas for continued growth,” Marting said.
