Job Description

Who We Are

New Visions for Public Schools is the leading non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of public education in New York City.  Today, we support 1,600 public schools and thousands of teachers, serving almost 1,000,000 students, in their most critical work: deciding what and how to teach, helping keep students on track to graduation, and preparing students for success beyond high school.  New Visions directly manages a network of 10 charter high schools across the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. 


Who You Are

You’re an experienced educator looking to take on a leadership opportunity at one of our charter high schools.  You thrive in high-energy, fast-paced environments.  You inspire your teams to strive higher than they thought possible.

What You’ll Do

You’ll lead school efforts to provide students with the skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to succeed academically and socially. You will adeptly assist in facilitating and collaborating with faculty and staff, teach using alternative pedagogy, and identify and use diagnostic and formative assessments.  You’ll engage in and support classroom and organizational level inquiry to inform impactful decision-making. You will lead a grade group cohort from 9th-12th grades, in conjunction with the school counselor.  You will challenge young people to succeed academically and provide them with the support they need to excel.

Why New Visions?

You’ll have the opportunity to connect directly with students and families to help them achieve their dreams.  You’ll be challenged constantly, but will always have an amazing team to back you up and push you to succeed.  You get to work with thought leaders and innovators in the education section.  And you’ll be contributing to changing the landscape of public education in NYC.  Plus, we have great medical benefits and fun work perks!
