(The following press release was submitted by Wentzville School District.)
The Wentzville School District Board of Education has selected current Frontier Middle School Principal Mr. Phil Ragusky to lead the new high school when it opens next year. The Board has voted unanimously to name the school Liberty High School, based on the suggestions of students, parents and staff members. The Board also took that input into consideration and selected the Eagle as mascot and blue, red, and white as the school colors.
Mr. Ragusky has spent the last 25 years in education, and has served the Wentzville School District for the past nine years as a middle school principal. He has been at Frontier Middle School since the beginning, and helped opened the building in 2005.
“I love my Frontier family, and at the same time I am so excited about the opportunity to create a high school with the same fantastic students who have helped make FMS such a great school. The possibilities are endless and my desire is to help create a high school that the entire Wentzville School District Community can be proud to call its own.” Mr. Ragusky received his bachelors in education from the University of Missouri, his Masters and Specialist degrees from UMSL, and will soon complete his Doctorate in Education.
Liberty High School is located at 2275 Sommers Road, and will be a 227,000 sq. ft. comprehensive high school when completed. Construction is on schedule, and the school will open for a freshman class in August of 2013.
