Hellenic Classical Charter School, which uses didactic instruction, coaching, and Socratic questioning to teach children, recently broke ground on an expansion. The school is expanding due to an expected influx of students in the fall, and the project is estimated to be finished within 18 months.

Hellenic Classical Charter School, currently run by principal Christina Tettonis, is expanding its facilities to cater to an influx of new students in the coming year. The school expects to have more than 450 pupils enrolling in the fall and needs additional space to educate all of them. The school broke ground in June, and the $8.2 million expansion, sponsored by the Hudson Valley Bank, is expected to be completed within 18 months.

Hellenic Classical Charter School’s mission statement proudly boasts, “The school will utilize didactic instruction, coaching, and Socratic questioning. All students will leave the school prepared intellectually, socially, and emotionally to gain entry to and succeed in the best high schools in New York City.” Success is aided by the charter school’s partnership with the Greek government—the schools’ Greek and Latin teachers hail from Greece. The charter school is also partnered with Columbia University teachers in the reading and writing division to assist with professional development in teachers and make sure students are living up to their potential.
