Employer Description
Our Sisters’ School is a small, close knit school serving students in grades 5 – 8. We serve motivated girls from low income families and historically underrepresented groups. We recruit staff and students from diverse faiths, races, and cultures. We’re located in New Bedford, MA which is a little over an hour from Boston, and half hour from Providence. Close to the water, and with affordable housing options, New Bedford attracts people looking to work hard and build and maintain a family friendly community. We sound like a Catholic school, when in fact, we are not religiously affiliated. The name of our school honors the maritime history of New Bedford. It celebrates courageous young women who ventured out on whaling vessels in the early 1800’s, and were called “sister sailors”. Our students, modern “sister sailors” at Our Sisters’ School, are bravely adventuring on the high seas of their educational journeys. In our safe, supportive, and challenging environment, strong academics are coupled with positive character development as OSS students explore our core values of excellence, community, citizenship and leadership. Our educational philosophy values experiential, purposeful and community-oriented learning; our goal is to build the best educational environment we can imagine as we support the growth of our students. Flexibility, creativity, teamwork and hard work are some of the things our staff appreciate and value in the work environment at OSS.
Diversity Mission Statement
We hire to intentionally include people from a variety of backgrounds. Our students and staff are not all alike, and our different thinking, experiences, and the people we are, creates a rich tapestry of learning at Our Sisters School and makes us stronger. Our community works hard to create and maintain a working and learning environment that’s diverse, inclusive, equitable, and welcoming. As an equal opportunity employer, all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
