We expect our teachers not only to be excellent in their own disciplines, with a passion for teaching and for working with children, but also to work collaboratively toward school-wide goals. We have structured the curriculum and school day to allow that to happen. We also want to support teachers with a multitude of professional development opportunities, including teaching at our campuses around the world. Faculty can model the behaviors we are espousing in our commitment to global competency and global citizenship.
Our viewbook provides a comprehensive summary of an Avenues education.
