What We Look For
Is Summit right for you?
1. You want to be a world-class project-based learning teacher
Our teachers are supported in being some of the best project-based learning teachers in the world, through a strong curriculum and assessment system that’s been designed by teachers, for teachers, and in partnership with some of the world’s most renowned learning scientists.
2. You want to collaborate with high-performing, mission-aligned peers.
At Summit, teachers collaborate with their colleagues multiple times per week. You’ll meet each week with either subject-specific or grade-level specific groups to collaborate, and meet weekly as a full faculty to provide input, share resources, tackle issues that arise, and work toward our shared vision.
3. You’re excited to grow and be developed in an organization that values continuous improvement
Summit teachers receive regular one-on-one coaching, professional development, observations, and feedback. As an organization, Summit is deeply dedicated to continuous improvement in order to best serve our students.
4. You’re committed to supporting ALL diverse students to lead a fulfilled life
Summit schools are small, intentionally heterogeneous schools that reflect the demographics of their communities. Our teachers support each unique student by creating equitable learning pathways and through mentoring students with their individual long-term goals.
Summit teachers are required to have teaching credentials for all teaching roles. All applicants should have a teaching credential for California, Washington, or another U.S. state.
