"I met Peter as he undertook the very large task of creating a school from scratch. As the founding principal of a startup school, he had to plan for and deal with all the aspects of creating a sustainable educational environment for teachers, staff, and students. As a fellow administrator, I worked closely with Peter and observed an incredibly thoughtful leader who cared deeply for students, instructors, and the impact our school’s instruction had on families. Peter brought his own unique experiences to his position and leveraged them to help create the culture that drove student results. I observed a decisive leader who had to make tough calls, a principal focused on student engagement, and someone who went out of his way to make connections with both adults and students in his school."
