NYC Faculty

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.
