Our thinking curriculum is the hallmark of our program, which focuses on teaching students to think like the writers, scientists, historians, artists and mathematicians whose work they study. At Eastside Prep, our commitment is to enable our students to think for themselves – and for the good of the planet.

Faculty Positions Available for 2016-17

Teacher Qualifications

Successful applicants for classroom positions are outstanding teachers with strong interest in how their students think and learn. Successful applicants for available positions are those whose teaching philosophy is aligned with the mission of the school. They appreciate a high trust environment among colleagues and between home and school. They appreciate humor, understand that their responsibility has more to do with students’ learning than with their teaching, and they believe that the primary responsibility of the teacher is to promote the student’s success. Applicants must have sufficient expertise in a subject area to help students use its key concepts and methodologies as they engage in academic inquiries. At a minimum, the applicant should have a Master of Arts or Sciences degree or the equivalent; PhD or equivalent is preferred. All full-time teachers work as part of a 5-12 teaching team to create an inquiry-based interdisciplinary program in which the academic disciplines are taught as “power tools.” Our aim is to enable students to make meaning out of knowledge and experience. Ability to teach more than one subject and past experience in interdisciplinary curriculum’s are advantageous but not required.
