LCCPS Welcomes New Executive Director
The Board of Trustees at Lowell Community Charter Public School is pleased to announce that they have appointed Nicholas Leonardos as the new Executive Director for the school. In discussing his new position, Mr. Leonardos expressed gratitude and excitement. “I’d like to thank the Board of Trustees for extending this wonderful opportunity to lead such a dynamic community of learners. I embrace the responsibility to help to close the achievement gaps that exist in our society today. I was impressed by the mission and vision of the school, and the spirit shown by the staff and parents that I've met so far has been remarkably positive.”
Nick Leonardos is a career educator with a deep understanding of high-quality instruction and a track record of improving outcomes for children in elementary and middle school environments. Nick has spent his administrative career working with stakeholders to use data, set goals, and promote best practice to advance learning. In every learning community Nick has worked in, he has established strong relationships with the school's students, parents, staff, administrative leadership, and the community to foster a culture of high achievement and competency for all.
Nick joins Lowell Community Charter Public School with more than 18 years’ experience as a school principal and 26 years in public education. He started his career student teaching in Los Angeles and teaching in Houston as part of the Teach for America program. He was part of the launch of Boston Renaissance Charter School when it opened in 1995, serving first as a teacher and subsequently as Academy Director. Most recently, he served as a principal in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he successfully led a school through a major transition and spearheaded efforts that led the school to attain Level One status.
In 2006, Nick was the recipient of the Milken Educator Award from the Milken Family Foundation, an annual award which recognizes excellent educators in each state. Nick completed his undergraduate study at McGill University and received a Master’s in Education Administration, Planning and Social Policy from Harvard University. He lives in Cambridge with his wife and has two daughters now enrolled in college.
Mr. Leonardos will take up his post at LCCPS on July 1, 2017. Mr. Hung Mai, Chair of the Board at LCCPS, spoke about the search process and the selection of Mr. Leonardos at the board’s regular meeting in February. Of Mr. Leonardos, he said “Nick has an incredible wealth of experience and such passion for this work and our mission. His vision will help guide the school in the years to come and we anticipate great things for LCCPS under his leadership.”
