Paul McGlynn


Mr. McGlynn has served as a teacher and director in charter schools and public education for many years and is committed to the success of innovative, high achieving charter schools. He has been a leader of schools that served underserved and gifted populations, which were built upon missions and visions to create stronger, healthier, more ethical and prosperous communities through excellent education.

As founding director for Great Oaks Academy, he is deeply committed to building a school with rigorous academics, high expectations and a strong emphasis on developing moral character. He intends to focus on bringing a rich curriculum of language, literature, ancient history, world studies and physical activity to every child and to challenge each student with a time-tested and proven classical curriculum that will exceed expectations found in most contemporary public schools.
