We have English positions available to begin at different times during the school year. (Our school year runs from January to November 6th.) Possible available positions are primary and secondary classroom teachers.

We are a bilingual, experimental/laboratory school, and utilize cutting edge teaching strategies to better meet the learning needs of each student. We use Project-Based learning strategies, Socratic Seminars, NEWSELA differentiation techniques to engage learning.

We strive to nurture effective communication skills, master core academic content and engage in inquiry based lessons. Our goals are to encourage each individual student to learn the way he/she learns best. Learning experiences and educational expectations are academically, intellectually, and personally challenging for all students.

We are heavily engaged in a community outreach program with a local community 2-room school. We have included other local public schools to our service list as well. This experience will impact your outlook on life and will create a lasting effect on your future role in the global world. It has made a great impact on our students and staff.
