Employer Description
 

Madison Country Day School is Dane County’s only independent Pre-K–12 school, offering a challenging and comprehensive college-preparatory education, including the Madison, Wisconsin area’s only International Baccalaureate program. In an environment where each community member is truly known, MCDS students develop a deep knowledge base and life-long critical and creative thinking skills.


At MCDS we are looking for energetic, flexible, and open-minded teachers; motivated by new opportunities and challenges. We are seeking teachers who are passionate about and committed to the mission and vision of Madison County Day School and able to demonstrate the values and traits of the International Baccalaureate Programmes and Learner Profile while teaching and working. 


Academic excellence begins with a rigorous, world-class curriculum coupled with our small class sizes and individualized instruction, the MCDS curriculum is the cornerstone of one of the country’s finest college-preparatory educations.


An inspiring learning environment is critical for maintaining our academic standards. Beginning with our esteemed faculty who exuberantly share their knowledge and love for learning on a daily basis, it continues with parents dedicated to providing the support children need for a quality education. And last, but certainly not least, students embody our everyday lessons of respect, acceptance and understanding.


Madison Country Day School’s vision is for all members of the school community to feel valued and supported as well as inspired to embrace the diversity of each person. MCDS respects, affirms, and protects the dignity and worth of each member of its community. We seek to establish a culture wherein every member feels safe, valued, and encouraged to participate in every aspect of the community.


MCDS embraces and celebrates diversity and does not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, or sexual identity in its hiring.

Diversity Mission Statement
 
Madison Country Day School Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Madison Country Day School’s vision is for all members of the school community to feel valued and supported as well as inspired to embrace the diversity of each person. MCDS respects, affirms, and protects the dignity and worth of each member of its community. We seek to establish a culture wherein every member feels safe, valued, and encouraged to participate in every aspect of the community.

Our mission promises an intellectually stimulating, personally enriching, and academically challenging educational program. MCDS achieves this endeavor in part through our IB programmes, which naturally support Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion by:

Encouraging students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions
Encouraging students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts
Becoming more culturally aware, through the development of a second language

Additionally, the aim of our IB Learner Profile character education program is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. We take pride in developing balanced, principled, open-minded, caring, reflective, risk-taking students who think astutely and are exceptional, empathetic communicators. We will make mistakes and will learn from them together. We will offer grace and truth. To this end, we encourage and present courageous conversation opportunities to promote greater connections and understanding amongst the members within our community and in the world beyond MCDS.

MCDS will establish clearly defined policies and procedures that promote an equitable and affirming climate of emotional and physical safety among its community members. MCDS community members will be attentive to the quality of life of all members of MCDS and take appropriate actions to ensure all members feel honored, valued, and respected. This work is both our shared responsibility and our shared opportunity.

This work is important and ongoing. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Rachel Fleming, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Advisory Council Committee Chair.
