After only three years as principal at Newport Harbor High School, Bob Boies will retire when the school year ends.

Boies, 58, said he will spend his time to care for his parents, play with his grandsons, travel with his wife and work on his golf game.

His departure comes a year earlier than he previously expected. His parents, both in their late 80s, need his assistance with their Long Beach home and their finances to remain living independently. His wife, a teacher in Tustin, also plans to retire this year and wants his company.

"She's talked about retiring before, but this time she put the paperwork in," he said. "And she's told me everything she wants to do she needs me to do with her."

Boies said he has his regrets about leaving, especially now that things are running smoothly at Newport Harbor. Boies began his 36-year career in education as a history teacher and coached basketball, tennis, football and track on the side.
