These responsibilities will be assigned based on the applicant’s skills and experience. 


ABOUT SAINT ANN’S SCHOOL

Saint Ann's is among the largest and most selective independent schools in New York City, known for the breadth and depth of its curriculum in academic disciplines and the visual and performing arts. Since its founding in 1965, Saint Ann’s has embraced a commitment to education for its own sake, oriented to the capacities of each individual student, free of the encumbrances of formal grading, prizes, and rankings.
