School in the Square Public Charter School
Recently opened independent charter school. School in the Square integrates the core values of democratic living with best practice teaching and learning, ensuring that each child and educator feels known, heard, and safe as well as challenged, supported, and engaged. We opened in Washington Heights in September 2016 as a 6-8 grade middle school with aspirations to eventually grow the school to service grades 6-12. We are proud of our first year accomplishments and are hiring a new cohort of staff for our second year. We are a startup-style learning culture focused on collaboration, design, reflection, and innovation and are building a team of mission-driven teacher-leaders to play a significant role in opening and running the school.
We are as committed to adult learning as we are to student learning and are searching for experienced, knowledgeable, reflective and passionate staff who want to help us build an engaging learning community that respects adolescents.
