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.

All job listings are provided by OIS member schools. For more information about each listing, please contact the school directly.
