Be Part of Something Big

Outstanding teachers and leaders have plenty of career options. So why do our staff consistently choose to stay within the DC Scholars Community Schools network? According to our team, these things make DC Scholars Community Schools great places to work.

“We are true to the mission, to the cause. You have to know that ‘I am here because I want to make a difference.’ You have to do it with passion. I love the work that I do. It is fulfilling, and it is rewarding because I see the outcome. This is not about a pay check, it is about making a difference for children who don’t have a voice to advocate for themselves. We are here because this is what we would want for our own children.”

Inspiration & challenge are part of Community Schools’ work

As a team of professionals, we do some of the toughest and most rewarding work in America: building schools into places full of joy, academic rigor, and high expectations. This work is not just a career; it is our calling. As a member of our schools, you will be surrounded by professionals who share your urgency and commitment to improving education and social-emotional growth for all students, regardless of their family’s income or zip code.

Let’s grow, together

From day one, you will receive targeted support from school leaders, instructional coaches and peers who are fully devoted to your growth and success. You will have the support of school-wide culture systems that create a strong sense of community, and allow you and your students to thrive. Also, you will grow in your understanding of the families and diverse communities we serve, thanks to our organization's unique focus on community engagement.

DC Scholars Community Schools now manages DCSPCS and Stanton Elementary. While we manage two schools during school year 2016 -17, our goal is to expand and transform other schools in the District of Columbia. In order to expand and truly transform schools, we need talented, eager team members who are excited about growing into leadership roles. We strive to give interested teachers the skills and opportunities to transition into leadership roles more quickly than is typically possible.
