The Community Charter School of Cambridge has named Caleb Hurst-Hiller as its next head of school.
The Board of Trustees for the charter school has appointed Hurst-Hiller to the post effective July 1, when he will succeed current Head of School Paula Evans, according to a press release from the school. Hurst-Hiller is the current principal of the charter school’s upper school and he is a founding member of the organization.
“The next few years promise to be very exciting for us as we transition from ‘start-up’ to established organization and begin to expand our course offerings and add to our existing extra-curricular programming,” Hurst-Hiller stated in the press release.
“Clearly, our focus will remain on helping students achieve success in school, in college, and in life.”
Previously, Hurst-Hiller taught at North Central Charter Essential School in Fitchburg. At the Community Charter School of Cambridge he has served as a humanities teacher, basketball coach, humanities department chair, instructional leader, and most recently, as principal of the grades 10 through 12 upper school.
“We are delighted,” said Denise Jillson, chair of the charter school’s Board of Trustees. “We are looking forward to working with Caleb and building on the successful program established by his predecessor, Paula Evans. Caleb has been with us since the beginning; we are confident that he is the right person for the job.”
