Compositive Primary, a new school serving three year olds through 5th grade, located on the Fitzsimons Innovation Campus in Aurora, Colorado, is now seeking exceptional educators to be part of the founding faculty team. Compositive Primary’s mission is to educate students to live lives of personal excellence. The school is organized around the integration of four domains: cognition, character, health and well-being, and community engagement; and seeks to cultivate every child’s capacity to reflect and learn, recognize and act, care and connect, and engage and serve. This integrated and personalized education places the child at the center of the learning process. Educators facilitate student growth and development and work in collaboration with each other, with families, and with the community. Curriculum is inquiry-based and thematic. The student to teacher ratio is nine to one, and classrooms will be organized in multi-age groups. Compositive Primary will be housed in a new facility currently under construction.
