Archimedean Upper Conservatory is currently seeking high school teachers to lead courses in multiple fields including Honors & A.P.-level classes in:
WHO ARE WE?
Archimedean is a partial bilingual high school committed to kindling the art of thinking and intellectual growth. As such, students are provided a well-rounded, thorough education through the careful selection of rigorous and advanced coursework in mathematics, science, philosophy, social science, English, and Greek, complemented by enriching electives and extracurricular experiences.
Archimedean Upper Conservatory has a demanding college preparatory curriculum ranked among the top in the U.S.. The school was recognized with the National Blue Ribbon Award by the U.S. Department of Education in 2018 and is considered one of the very top in Florida. Setting high expectations is a must at A.U.C., which was ranked as the 23rd Most Challenging in the nation out of over twenty-thousand schools by Jay Mathews and The Washington Post (2020) and as the 63rd Best High School in the country according to U.S. News & World Report (2021). A.U.C. is looking for motivated and ambitious individuals to join our faculty to continue to help our students open doors that normally would be shut so that they can dream of a brighter and more fulfilling future.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Our mission is to ensure the matriculation of our students at even the most prestigious colleges and graduate schools while maximizing their future abilities, opportunities, and happiness. We know the success of students in the demanding academic program of the Upper Conservatory is based on a team of highly-qualified and dedicated educators. Considering Students enroll in Honors, Advanced Placement, and additional high-level courses not normally offered at this level, we seek only the most motivated and committed teachers. Teachers are thus hand-selected for both their educational achievements and dedication as well as their life experience and backgrounds that bring new ideas and outlooks into the classroom to enrich the lives of our students.
While a bachelor’s degree in the area of instruction is required, a graduate degree is strongly preferred, though not necessary. A degree in Education specifically is not required either. We are looking, however, for individuals who have strong backgrounds in their respective academic fields and will help individuals new to the art of teaching itself receive the mentorship and professional development they need to master the skills of being a productive classroom instructor. A positive attitude and a willingness to learn is necessary. We also work with individuals on the steps needed to obtain their Florida teacher certification if they do not already possess this documentation. Passion and knowledge in the field of interest, and a strong desire to work enthusiastically with teenagers, is what we are looking for and are especially interested in first and foremost.
Teachers are expected to be active in all aspects of the operations of the school: sponsoring extracurricular clubs and activities, designing eye-opening field trips, and heading optional academic interventions to guarantee top-level performances in academic competitions as well as on all standardized and Advanced Placement examinations. We want teachers who want students to learn both in and out of the classroom.
