You are, above all, a learner. Your potential is limitless because you are constantly growing as a person and as a professional.
You are driven by the belief that all children, regardless of their background or their zip code, can achieve at the highest levels. You believe that it is the job of a school to provide the right academic and behavioral supports so every student can succeed, including the implementation of restorative justice practices.
You are team-oriented and love to collaborate with others.
You understand that running a high-quality school is hard work – but you believe it can be done – and you are excited to roll up your sleeves and get to work.
Who We Are
Capital Village PCS invites passionate, growth-minded educators to join our innovative team as we reimagine middle school learning. Here, small class sizes of 15 students on average allow personalized attention from two teachers in most classrooms.
Here, we’ve created a nurturing village environment of no more than 175 middle school students, intentionally small to facilitate deep relationships. Through Individualized Learning Plans designed in partnership with students, families and teachers, each scholar customizes their experience unleashing unique talents. Through Individualized Learning Plans created collaboratively with students, families, and teachers, each scholar customizes their experience according to their unique strengths and passions.
Rigorous academics are brought to life through interdisciplinary project-based learning centered on local issues. Following EL Education principles, we empower youth to solve real problems in their communities through Social Justice Projects that align rigorous standards with developing important life skills. Personalizing and differentiating instruction for each student requires hard work and collaboration between our teachers.
You’ll receive coaching and have opportunities to continually develop your craft through robust professional learning communities. As a staff, we work hard yet also prioritize our own well-being and voice through an supportive work culture where you can be your authentic self.
