The SkyView Academy (f.k.a. Northstar Academy-West) board has just announced that their Executive Director is Merlin Holmes. Merlin has been well-known in the charter school community. I met him when he was the high school principal at The Classical Academy. We've had numerous, long conversations about high schools and he has great ideas.
Merlin also worked in the Schools of Choice Unit at CDE, served as principal at Legacy Academy, started Landmark Academy for National Heritage Academies, Inc. and continues to do extensive consulting.
SkyView Academy will be opening this fall at C-470 and Quebec in Highlands Ranch where they're converting a building that was formerly at Home Depot store. The school will open K-5, but next year add a sixth and ninth grade as they gradually grow to become a K-12 school.
