Why Teach and Coach at an Independent School



Teaching at independent schools means building close relationships in small classes, innovating and collaborating, inspiring discovery, focusing on learning rather than test taking.  School communities include dedicated faculty, supportive alumni, and devoted parents, all committed to preparing young people for lives of leadership and service.
