Announcing our Principal, Mr. Stephen Wright

The governing board of Tallahassee Classical School is thrilled to announce that Stephen Wright has been named as our founding principal. A California native, Wright graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) with a Bachelor’s degree in History. He later received his Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from California State University, Northridge. After completing his education, Wright returned to the same school district where he was educated as a young student. Over the next ten years, he worked side by side with many of the same teachers who taught him when he was young. Steve then authored a resource book for teachers and has presented at numerous seminars for professional educators over the years. Subsequently, Steve founded a private K-12 classical school in Santa Clarita, California and later led College Pathways, a 7th-12th grade classical charter school in Colorado Springs, Colorado. College Pathways has been rated among the 500 best high schools in America by US News and World Report. Steve’s wife, Michelle, is a bilingual school psychologist of over 20 years who is currently serving K-12 students in Colorado Springs. Together they have three sons. Ethan, the eldest, is studying business at UCCS and his brother Cameron has just started college after attending a semester abroad studying language in an international school in China. Matthew, the youngest, will finish high school in a year and plans to study engineering and architecture. Steve enjoys traveling, spending time with family and friends, and appreciating local history, museums, and performing arts. An active music and movie enthusiast, he also has a love for architecture and art.
