Our school uses a place-based pedagogical approach and is structured around the three principles of scholarship, stewardship, and citizenship.

Special consideration will be given to applicants who have the following: Three years’ experience teaching; experience working in a place-based or project-based school; experience working with children in 7th and 8th grades; ESL credentials.
