Big Arts in the Little Apple Closing Reception

Posted on by Classical School

This past fall, 3rd and 4th grade students listened to a piece of music and created art inspired by the music.

Principal’s Address

Posted on by Classical School

Dear Classical Families and Friends, A great number of parents, students, and colleagues have asked me to describe the transition from being a classroom teacher to becoming the principal of Classical School. Do I miss teaching? How is it going? How do I handle student discipline or parental concerns? Question: Do I miss teaching? Answer: My educational career feels like the other chapters in my life. Beginning a new chapter does not diminish the satisfaction found in the previous ones. Teaching students on a daily basis had a specific rhythm and routine, and I do indeed miss the energy of…
