*School Overview: *

The Winchendon School seeks innovative and ambitious educators for our satellite campus The Winchendon School - New York. Winchendon's academic program intentionally builds essential academic and character skills, while facilitating a supportive space for students to direct their own education toward experiential learning opportunities, internships, independent projects, and other initiatives that they are excited about. For all of our students, we strive to assist in the growth of character traits and life skills essential for a successful future: initiative, creativity, grit, empathy, cooperation, independence. Ours is a college preparatory school with the mission to support students who may not be as successful in more traditionally constructed schools, and so our faculty must be relentlessly empathetic, creative, and flexible as we build skills and confidence among students who are largely underserved in other programs.

Since the satellite campus is still a growing startup (Opened 2018/19 with 25 students; 60 students enrolled in 2022/23; A target of 75 for 2023/23), faculty are called upon to teach a range of subjects and participate in multiple functions of school operations. A qualified teacher will be a dedicated student of teaching methods and student-centered engagement, incorporate contextualized project and field-based learning opportunities into their classrooms, and utilize self-reflection as an assessment strategy and vehicle to encourage growth. Above all, we employ teachers who love and are loved by their students: _*our institutional purpose is to inspire, empower, and elevate each student through a joyful and transformative learning experience.*_

_The Winchendon School provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetics.
