Employer Description
The Girls' Middle School
Imagine a school where each day is alive with learning, creativity, and a spirit of adventure. In its 19th year, The Girls' Middle School (GMS) has developed a reputation for excellence in progressive education and innovative programming, meeting the needs of a wide range of middle school girls. GMS educates girls during a pivotal time in their lives. Our multi-cultural curriculum encourages creativity, problem solving, and independent thought. Attention to girls' emotional and social growth develops self-knowledge and confidence as well as teamwork and leadership skills. The Girls' Middle School encourages girls to spread their wings, take risks, and be self-reliant.

Teaching at The Girls' Middle School
There is a rich, collegial work environment at GMS. Just as we value each individual student within our community, we also value each individual teacher. We want them to teach to their passion, and so we provide the autonomy and opportunity to create curriculum and learning experiences that support the common goals of each department, grade level, and the school as a whole. Our curriculum emphasizes experiential and problem-based learning. Our narrative assessment process encourages students to pursue learning rather than chase grades. Our passionate, mission-driven faculty strives to create a joyful, inclusive, and respectful community of students and adults.

GMS celebrates different perspectives coming together in community. We are committed to sustaining and broadening the diversity, in all dimensions, of our faculty and staff. We are an equal-opportunity employer, offering salaries commensurate with other independent schools and a comprehensive benefits package. We also offer teachers professional development opportunities through participation in professional conferences, workshops, and courses.
