 New York, New York County, New York, United States

Job Description

School of the Future is hiring! We are looking for two high school science teachers to teach Physics, AP Biology, Environmental Science, as well as a senior science elective. We are also looking for a Computer Science teacher, a Special Education teacher with a focus on math and history, and a Spanish teacher.

School of the Future is a small, innovative public sixth through twelfth grade school within District 2. We are located in the Gramercy Park neighborhood at 22nd Street and Lexington Avenue with a student population of seven hundred and thirty.  We aim to have a rigorous, supportive and Antiracist environment.  Half of our classes are co-taught and we have a very strong and integrated Special Education Program.  Students at School of the Future graduate by portfolio and exhibitions. Portfolios in the Middle School are a collection of the students’ best works and exhibitions in the High School are extensively researched papers and oral presentations whereby students demonstrate they have mastered the challenging standards of research: construct and answer an interesting essential question, demonstrate critical thinking skills, and adhere to conventions of writing. The high school uses this form of assessment instead of Regents Exams. In general, our staff uses a range of alternative assessments to inform their daily practice and objectives for individual students. Our approach is to be nurturing yet academically demanding and provide personally and politically engaging curricula. We are a project-based school as we believe the workshop approach fits with our philosophy of apprenticeship and students as worker, teacher as coach. Please check out our website at sof.edu.
