Learning is not confined to the classroom: we have an experiential-interim program, student generated club activities, and a community service program. Learning opportunities abound, shared with friends and committed teachers.
A qualified candidate will have a Bachelors degree in Biology, Chemistry or a related field.
A minimum of 5 years classroom teaching experience is required or the equivalent teacher preparation (MAT)/Internship Program.
