NETWORK STAFF AT CLASSICAL CHARTER SCHOOL

Organized to Best Serve Scholars in the South Bronx

At Classical Charter Schools we believe in collaborative decisions made by stakeholders at all levels. This allows us to stay close to the work and always make decisions that are in the best interest of our scholars and families. It also makes it possible for us to operate and innovate at a network level with only a small team of network leaders. This leadership structure at charter high school contributed to our ability to transition to remote learning in less than three days while maintaining attendance rates above 90% in live-taught, consistently excellent classrooms. 

Meet the network team at Classical Charter Schools, the #1 non-CMO network in New York City. 

Meet Our Network Staff

Mr. Long



Lester Long graduated from Dartmouth College in 1993, where he majored in Economics, while also concentrating in Government. Immediately thereafter, he started his career in investment banking, rising from an entry level analyst to Vice President within six years, and working for firms such as Societe Generale and Lehman Brothers. 

With a desire to share his success, Long began a second career teaching elementary school in the South Bronx through the New York City Teaching Fellows Program, which places accomplished professionals from other fields in the City’s most under-performing schools. Mr. Long taught literacy, mathematics, music, and physical education to general and special education students of all grades. While teaching during the day, he earned a Master’s in Elementary Education from Hunter College at night.
