In August, students and faculty at North Springs Charter High School will be greeted with a new face in the halls: Dr. Eddie Ruiz.
Ruiz will assume the position as the school’s principal in the upcoming school year, taking the place of five-year predecessor Lisa Stueve, who announced her resignation in March.
From Orlando, Fla., Ruiz’s resume includes experience as a former high school science teacher, coach, high school assistant principal at two high schools and principal of two middle schools, Acceleration Academy and Jackson Middle School. He officially began work this week, relocating to the Atlanta area with his wife of 14 years, Elizabeth and their 6-year-old son, Ethan.
He says his “number one goal this summer is to listen and learn from as many teachers, parents, staff, and students that I encounter about the culture, traditions, and history of North Springs. I look forward to being a Spartan and to working together to bring North Springs Charter High School to the next level.”
