We are founders
Every team member contributes to the growth of a new learning community. We need people who can work with families and students to re-envision what school should look like – and help make it happen.
Relationships are at the center of our work
Academic success is only part of the equation. To be truly successful, students – and team members – need authentic connection with one another, their individual identities, and their deepest values. We use Restorative Practices and engage together in daily Social and Emotional learning to build the relationships that sustain us.
We build strong teams
We know that students are best served by strong teacher teams, not just loosely connected classrooms. Girls Prep places teachers in the grade and content area that best meets students’ needs and ensures the team’s success. Teachers may also loop to the next grade level to support sustained student growth. Placement decisions are made with team input.
We focus on deep mastery of STEAM and literacy
All staff engage in professional learning grounded in standards-based, vertically aligned curricula. This approach supports long-term mastery of rigorous conceptual knowledge, procedural skills and fluency, and the ability to apply them in novel contexts.
We are all learners
Our team’s growth is the most important predictor of our students’ growth. We are looking for teammates who have the courage to take risks, make mistakes, and grow.
