Why work at an Independent School?

Teachers at independent schools are offered a supportive and professional environment where faculty and staff are given the autonomy and resources to be effective and influential educators. Some of the reasons teachers choose to work at an independent school are:

  • Teachers have greater instructional autonomy;
  • Teachers are encouraged to not just instruct, but be collaborators and facilitators;
  • Teachers are supported and respected by colleagues and school heads;
  • Close-knit school communities that actively support achievement;
  • Teaching students is a collaborative approach that actively involves parents in both academic and extracurricular aspects;
  • Students come to an environment where they are expected to come prepared to learn.

Listing of jobs by school

Dearcroft Montessori School 

Located on a historic estate within walking minutes of the town, Lake Ontario and community parks, Dearcroft blends into pleasant, treed surroundings on an attractive two-acre campus.  Spacious classrooms, large windows, and a unique building design combine to provide a bright, cheerful indoor learning environment.  The outdoor area is equally pleasant with a variety of play equipment and ample space for games, climbing and other sports activities.
 
Supported by like-minded parents and dedicated staff, we have developed a remarkable learning community.  With a low student to teacher ratio, our staff enjoy ideal conditions for helping our students to achieve their personal and academic goals.  In close cooperation, all members of our school community recognize the strength of an outstanding team and are appreciative of the opportunity to work together in such a creative and exciting learning environment.
