  • What do we look for in prospective employees?

    We seek faculty and staff members who are passionate about learning and committed to nurturing and challenging students. In addition to being skilled in your craft, you should be technologically savvy, enjoy outside interests, and have a positive attitude and a sense of humor. Teachers should have both a national and a global perspective on preparing students for the world in which they will live. And, in all cases, we look for individuals who will be active participants in the school community beyond their normal work.

2021 Diversity Recruiting Fair

Research shows that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning environment is critical to student success and a marker of educational excellence. One crucial component in creating such an environment is having a diverse faculty and staff that reflects the beautiful mosaic of students we teach. As such, we are participating in the third annual Southern California Diversity Recruiting Fair 2021 to recruit faculty, staff, and administrators from underrepresented groups. More than 50 independent schools in Los Angeles are participating.   
The fair will take place virtually from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The link will be provided to registrants. In addition to the fair, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from panelists on a variety of topics relevant to working in an independent school.
In order to participate in the fair, job candidates must submit a resume using the link below by Friday, February 5, 2021. Register Here.  
If you or someone you know is an educator or interested in becoming an educator, please join us on Saturday, February 20, 2021 to learn about the wonderful world of working in an independent school and to speak directly with school representatives about open positions.
