Teachers at Advent are collaborative members of a learning community, who are expected to participate actively in professional development and the documentation of student learning.
The Advent School employs two teachers in every classroom, Early Childhood through Sixth Grade. Specialists teach art, library, music, physical education, science, Spanish, and yoga. The Advent School’s administrative team includes Admission, Business, and Development officers.
For teaching candidates it is preferred that they have a Masters Degrees and a minimum of two to three years experience in a school with a comparable program, but a Bachelor’s Degree is sufficient for application. We expect teachers to be competent at curriculum design and current in the teaching of literacy and mathematics.
Since 1961, The Advent School has stayed true to its founding vision: an urban school whose community reflects the diversity of Boston; a forward thinking curriculum that inspires and engages a child’s passion for learning; a commitment to social justice; and a culture of collaboration where every child has the confidence to take action in a connected world.
