Athens Academy Physical Education Teacher (Grades K-8)

The School:
Athens Academy is a co-educational, non-sectarian, independent college preparatory day school of approximately 950 students in grades K3-12 that offers a traditional liberal arts curriculum and innovative approaches to teaching and learning. The school’s mission is to seek “excellence with honor in the educational and personal experience of each student.” Situated on a picturesque campus of 152 acres, Athens Academy admits students from diverse social, economic, religious, and racial backgrounds--all of whom benefit from a challenging academic program, a vibrant arts program, competitive athletics, and a variety of service opportunities. Athens Academy faculty and staff members are dedicated professionals who are not only experts in their respective fields of study, but are also sensitive to the gifts and challenges of individual students.

The Preschool:
Athens Academy’s goal of nurturing secure, successful, well-adjusted, and happy students while challenging them to grow academically begins in the Preschool (half-day program in grades K3, K4, and Pre-first). The Preschool curriculum blends skill building, motor development, and creative activities, as well as free play. Benefiting from activities-based learning, children learn the foundations of reading, writing, and mathematics. Activities are carefully tailored to individual interests, abilities, and development. Preschool students at Athens Academy also benefit from hands-on activities in discovery centers, outdoor gardens, art rooms, music rooms, a dedicated media center, and a spacious playground, all in a state-of-the-art facility which opened in 2011. The Preschool is composed of approximately 120 students and 22 teachers, assistant teachers, and instructional support staff.

The Lower School:
Lower School students (grades 1-4) at Athens Academy acquire a solid foundation in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, while also learning about responsibility, collaboration, and self-expression. A science laboratory classroom with a specialist teacher, a media center with a story telling room, and a discovery center used for a variety of activities all support classroom instruction. World languages, music, art, drama, and physical education classes are also woven into the fabric of the curriculum. Building upon traits developed as early as the Preschool, Lower School students are proud to uphold the concepts of mutual respect and kindness, as indicated by the “Kind Language Spoken Here” signs throughout the campus. The Lower School is composed of 250 students supported by approximately 30 teachers, assistant teachers, and instructional support staff.

The Middle School:
Recognizing that Middle School students are in a rapid mental, emotional, and physical growth stage of life, Athens Academy emphasizes responsibility, creativity, independent thinking, personal values, and service to others. Middle School students (grades 5-8), begin to master broader and more rigorous aspects of learning that include written expression, vocabulary, problem-solving, research, scientific investigation, and teamwork. An emphasis on critical and creative thinking runs throughout the curriculum. Opportunities for public speaking, performing, publication, and athletic competition complement the challenging academic program.

The Position:
Athens Academy seeks a dynamic, creative, and versatile full-time physical education teacher, beginning in August 2019. Essential characteristics include love of children, energy, flexibility, the ability to work with others, a good sense of humor, and a firm foundation in physical education. We are looking for someone who is excited to become a part of our community and enjoys and understands the needs and development of Lower and Middle School children.

ATLANTA INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL
UNITED STATES
seeks a

Middle School Principal
Effective from JULY 2019

SCHOOL PROFILE
Atlanta International School (AIS) opened in 1985 as an independent, non-profit, secular school delivering its programs in multiple languages. AIS is a not-for-profit 501c3 registered in the State of Georgia and is governed by a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees who appoint the Headmaster to run the school. AIS offers three International Baccalaureate (IB) programs to 1,270+ U.S. and international students from three-year-old kindergarten to grade 12. Rigorous academics are enriched by a world-class language acquisition program, which begins with a full-immersion preschool program in Spanish, French, German and Mandarin. The school offers STEM-and STEAM-endorsed and bilingual diplomas in addition to the prestigious IB diploma. Beyond the classroom, AIS students participate in award-winning performing and fine arts opportunities, competitive athletics and global experiential learning. The AIS community comprises over 95 nationalities who collectively speak more than 65 languages. The 97 students in the AIS Class of 2018 join the 1,498 AIS alumni around the world. AIS is accredited among others by: the Southern Association of Independent Schools/AdvancEd, the Council of International Schools, the Agence pour l'Enseignement Français à l'Étranger and is an authorized IB Continuum School offering the Primary Years Program, Middle Years Program and IB Diploma Program. All AIS students are IB students.

OUR MISSION
To meet the challenges and opportunities of our interdependent, fast-changing world as responsible citizens, young people require flexible intellectual competence, self-discipline, and a global outlook. To achieve these goals, they need rigorous academic preparation and a passion to become the best they can be. To thrive in and contribute to this world, they must have a solid sense of self and respect for others—as individuals, as members of a group, as citizens of their nations, and as members of the global community. Extraordinary individuals will be called upon to shape the 21st century. The mission of Atlanta International School (AIS) is to develop such individuals.

OUR CORE VALUES
We believe that encouraging each student to discover the intrinsic joy of learning and purposeful effort will help each one to set and achieve high academic standards.  Furthermore, we believe it is vital to nurture mutual respect and understanding among all members of our community. Together we cultivate a spirited sense of hope in human potential. We believe the diversity of our community provides an extraordinary opportunity to enable our students to communicate, create, and collaborate in order to build a peaceful future.

OUR STRATEGIC PLAN
Our mission to develop “extraordinary individuals who will shape the 21st Century” has always been grounded in our three pillars of Rigorous IB Curriculum, World-Class Language Learning and Inclusive, Multicultural Community.

External forces compel us to evolve and expand on our pillars, and to recommit to our students’ development of a Global Mindset. We must design experiences that enable our learners to become Adaptable, capable thinkers who demonstrate Perseverance and Resilience; we must create an environment that provides ample opportunities for Collaborative Creativity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship.

In our goals for this three-year rolling strategic plan, we strive to consider our programs with a view to our history and our future. How do we build on 33 years of accomplishment in international education? What are the structures, schedules and processes we need to support student learning? In which areas do we need to evolve our programs? What new ways of working should we consider? How should we think about learning spaces throughout our campus? And the most important question remains -- How do we best prepare our students for the world outside of AIS?

OUR CURRICULUM AND PROGRAMS
The Early Learning Center (ELC) for three and four-year-old students (3K, 4K) is a full immersion facility and students engage in the PYP in one of French, German, Spanish or Mandarin. The Primary Learning Center (PLC) for students in 5K – Grade 5 is a dual immersion/language acquisition facility and students engage in the PYP through the following language programs: dual immersion French/ English, German/ English, Spanish/ English, or in our Mandarin acquisition/ English Program. In addition, the following Heritage Languages (mother-tongues) are supported in Primary: Farsi, Hindi, Greek, Dutch, Italian, Arabic. Additional heritage languages are supported in Secondary School in response to student interest and demand.

The AIS Secondary School is comprised of our Middle School (Grades 6 through 8) and our Upper School (Grades 9 through 12). Students in Grades 6 through 10 follow the IB MYP and students in Grades 11 and 12 complete the IB Diploma Program. In the MYP, Design is given the same schedule time as all other core courses. Additional option choices are available for students in the MYP, and a wide array of IB DP courses are offered for Grades 11 and 12.

The school’s mission is to seek “excellence with honor in the educational and personal experience of each student.” Situated on a picturesque campus of 152 acres, Athens Academy admits students from diverse social, economic, religious, and racial backgrounds--all of whom benefit from a challenging academic program, a vibrant arts program, competitive athletics, and a variety of service opportunities. Athens Academy faculty and staff members are dedicated professionals who are not only experts in their respective fields of study, but are also sensitive to the gifts and challenges of individual students.

The Preschool:
Athens Academy’s goal of nurturing secure, successful, well-adjusted, and happy students while challenging them to grow academically begins in the Preschool (half-day program in grades K3, K4, and Pre-first). The Preschool curriculum blends skill building, motor development, and creative activities, as well as free play.

Additionally, the ideal candidate will possess superior communication skills, the ability to build consensus among students, teachers, and parents; and a willingness to be a participant in the larger Athens Academy community. Candidates with administrative experience in independent education are strongly encouraged to consider this opportunity.

Administrative Associate to Finance and Operations

School: Friends School of Atlanta
Available Position: Administrator
Description:

General Information
The Friends School of Atlanta is an independent, co-educational, Quaker school providing an education to over 170 students in a pre-kindergarten through eighth grade program. Our mission is to provide challenging academics in a diverse environment, drawing on the Quaker testimonies, or values, of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship to empower our students to go out into the world with conscience, conviction and compassion.

The Friends School of Atlanta continues a 325-year Quaker tradition of education based on the belief that there is that of God or goodness in every person, which Friends have historically referred to as the Light. We believe that all students have within themselves unique capacities for learning and achievement. The learning program provides opportunities for students to achieve their highest academic levels. In a supportive learning environment, students develop their capacities through independent thought, service and responsible action, thereby fostering lifelong learning, self-confidence and respect for others. We provide a caring, cooperative atmosphere encouraging students to support each other as equals, and discourage that which would set one student above another.

Quaker values, based in the worth of each person, are reaffirmed in the school by listening and negotiating in the spirit of unity. These same values lead us to strive for diversity among students, families, faculty and staff, the Board of Trustees and in all areas of school life.

Aftercare Teacher

School: Friends School of Atlanta
Available Position: Teacher
Description:

General Information
The Friends School of Atlanta is an independent, co-educational, Quaker school providing an education to over 170 students in a pre-kindergarten through eighth grade program. Our mission is to provide challenging academics in a diverse environment, drawing on the Quaker testimonies, or values, of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship to empower our students to go out into the world with conscience, conviction and compassion.

The Friends School of Atlanta continues a 325-year Quaker tradition of education based on the belief that there is that of God or goodness in every person, which Friends have historically referred to as the Light. We believe that all students have within themselves unique capacities for learning and achievement. The learning program provides opportunities for students to achieve their highest academic levels. In a supportive learning environment, students develop their capacities through independent thought, service and responsible action, thereby fostering life-long learning, self-confidence and respect for others. We provide a caring, cooperative atmosphere encouraging students to support each other as equals, and discourage that which would set one student above another.

Quaker values, based in the worth of each person, are reaffirmed in the school by listening and negotiating in the spirit of unity. These same values lead us to strive for diversity among students, families, faculty and staff, the Board of Trustees and in all areas of school life. As students incorporate the value of human respect into their lives, we believe they will take their wisdom and turn it toward social issues that extend beyond the immediate community to the world at large.
