TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Tallahassee Classical School has a new principal.
The school has formally hired Steve Wright, who will oversee the expansion of hiring faculty and staff. The public charter school will open this fall for students in kindergarten through seventh grade. Eventually, the school hopes to expand to K-12.
For now, the school is focusing on students and how they learn. They want students to be able to develop their minds and pursue their passions.
"We want to help students in the liberal arts tradition. To be released from school, in a way that they have freedom. Freedom to participate in our democracy, freedom to participate in their community with their families, and to pursue their passions and the things they wish to pursue in this world," said Wright.
Wright has a Bachelor's degree from the University of California Los Angeles and a Master's from California State University Northridge. He also has over 20 years of experience working in classical schools.
Open enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year has begun and the school has already received over 600 applications.
