Want to make a difference in a child's life? Teach with us!!!
Archimedean Upper Conservatory, a nationally top-ranked, Miami-based public high school is seeking a highly qualified, passionate, and ambitious English teacher.
Archimedean Upper Conservatory is a National Blue Ribbon (2018), nationally ranked high school (by The Washington Post, and the U.S. News & World Report) in Miami (FL), well-known for its academic teams (Science Olympiad, History Bowl, Model United Nations, Mathematics, and more) and the unmatched college admissions record. Archimedean’s core college preparatory curriculum provides a great balance to all our students between STEM and Literature/Humanities/Philosophy with courses such as Physics, Logic, Calculus, Political Philosophy, European History, and Women Studies all being part of the required core curriculum.
We are a relatively small school, 320 students and 30 faculty members. Our students’ demographics, 80% Hispanics, 10% Asian, 10% White, 60% first-generation, 50%+ economically disadvantaged, makes the school’s college accomplishments even more extraordinary. Almost all of our graduates (96%) have been offered admission to four-years liberal arts colleges and universities, and about 20% of our graduates were admitted to the most selective institutions, such as Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, Brown, Johns Hopkins, Amherst, Dartmouth, U-Chicago, MIT, Caltech, Berkeley, Rice, Emory, Duke, Pomona, Swarthmore, Stanford, Penn, and more.
The largest portion of the credit for these successes goes to our committed, energetic, competitive, independent, and diverse faculty, recognizing that our daily efforts provide our students with a realistic opportunity for upward mobility, and recognized by our students as their family away from home. A.U.C. is a unique, and personal project to many of us, including myself who I have been honored to join the Archimedean Schools project since its very beginning at 2002.
We are interested in talented individuals who are ambitious and believe that through teaching can bring such big impact to people’s lives.
