Ranney School is a professional learning community characterized by excellence and leads the way in best teaching practices. As such, Standards of Teaching Excellence serve as the guiding principles of professionalism for teachers and academic leaders alike and set the expectations that our teachers are leaders, forward thinkers, and most importantly, experts in their field whose life's work is to enrich the lives of young people.
The faculty at Ranney School is highly engaged in the life of the school, and inspires a culture of contribution and collaboration; leading by example in inspiring our students to model after these same attributes. Teachers also share in building our professional community and seek partnerships with colleagues in developing curriculum, implementing new student activities and actively serving their profession by mentoring peer educators to meet their shared visions and high standards.
Ranney School seeks to invite teaching professionals to our community who share in the belief that the school’s mission, and the ethos within, can be advanced through collaboration, contribution and excellence to inspire Ranney students to reach their highest potentials.
Our hiring season is typically scheduled between February and May, but we also welcome excellent teachers to pursue application throughout the school year. In doing so, candidates should be well versed in the school’s mission–promise and be aligned with Ranney School’s teaching philosophy. Teaching candidates should be prepared to demonstrate expertise in subject matter and pedagogy, and most importantly, should demonstrate a respect for the ideals of educating children and adolescence by partaking in their intellectual, personal, creative and moral development. In doing this successfully, teaching candidates should appreciate that teaching moments are not limited to classroom experiences, but rather reach into our roles as advisors, coaches, directors and leaders through student life activities, sports, clubs and programs. Finally, teaching candidates should also be committed to seeking ongoing professional growth opportunities and want to benefit from the dynamic learning environment that Ranney School provides its faculty.
We invite applicants with diverse backgrounds and perspectives to contact our school with a complete cover letter, resume, three references and a statement of teaching philosophy.
