Head of School – Evan Hundley
Evan Hundley (or Mr. H as he is known by the student body) has been with the school since July 2007 when he joined the community as the first non-founding Head of School. Evan is an experienced educator and coach with a 14 year teaching and coaching legacy at University Prep. He is also known in local tennis circles for running the Sand Point Golf & Country Club tennis program for 12 years.
Evan is renowned for his ability to challenge students and bring classrooms alive with role-playing, reenactments, and assigning projects that relate to real-world challenges. He is not a leader who sits in meetings all day, he participates in the day-to-day life of the school as a mentor, coach, and chaperone (sometimes all three in one day). As Head of School, Evan has guided the community towards growth in enrollment with a newly expanded facility to match. In addition, he has reached out to build a remarkable network of community partnerships with schools, businesses, non-profits and individuals who are dedicated to supporting the school’s efforts to redefine the middle school experience.
