Meet Steve

I have been the original owner of The Goddard School (Polaris) since 1999 and I'm an on-site active presence in the school daily. After earning my Bachelor’s degree from Miami University in 1994, I marketed technology used for education for DataBeam Corporation, Lotus Software, and IBM's eLearning division. I am the principal of this charter school. The Goddard School (Polaris) operates both as a private preschool and a non-public charter elementary school under the Ohio Department of Education. I have an amazing wife, Teresa, and two beautiful step-daughters, Breia and Mariah, and fun & energetic granddaughter, Scarlett. My wife is a top realtor in Central Ohio (, Breia is also a realtor and a buyer's agent on Teresa's team and Mariah is an esthetician and entrepreneur with her new collective, Raw Beauty, in Grandview. Scarlett is a student at our school and our #1 product tester! We all enjoy a very active family life.

What Teachers Mean to Me

Every member of the Goddard faculty has special, often extraordinary, gifts they share with their students. When a child comes home happy and can't wait to see their teacher the next day, tell us about it. Take this moment to celebrate your child's teachers!

We work tirelessly to ensure children thrive in a healthy, safe and warm environment. Within this secure and nurturing environment, children can discover their unique gifts.

Our programs go beyond academics and help children develop important social-emotional skills like kindness, empathy, responsible decision making and more.  

In our classrooms, creativity and curiosity blossom as children discover the wonder of learning. Through fun learning experiences (F.L.EX.®), your child will develop academic and social-emotional skills that will help them feel ready to take on the world.
