    Re: principal and headmaster

    In the US, public schools have principals.

    I have seen movies set at expensive, exclusive private boarding schools where the schools have a "headmaster" but I have never seen it used in real life. Local private schools (Catholic schools) use principal.

    You will, I'm sure, get a different answer from those in the UK or other part of the world.
