Position: Associate Division Head, Upper Division

Location: New York, NY

Start date: July/August 2019

Reports to: Head of Upper Division


Avenues is on a mission: changing the world through education. This is more than a platitude for us. With interconnected campuses under development in leading cities around the world, Avenues is uniquely positioned to develop world-wise leaders equipped to face and solve the future's complex global challenges.


On any given day, Avenues New York students might be designing a smartphone, in China, with Chinese peers. Or constructing a tiny house as they learn about sustainability. Or rehearsing a fellow student's original music as part of a Mastery project. Our schedule, designed for creative collaboration and inquiry-based teaching, gives teacher teams time to create deep learning experiences for students. Teachers are supported by Associate Division Heads, leaders dedicated to their success and growth.

Avenues seeks a daring, future-wise educator, whose personal mission aligns with ours, to join us as an Associate Division Head. The ADH will join a talented team of leaders who ensure that the Avenues upper division is an extraordinarily engaging place to work, a laboratory of deeper learning for all, and a thriving community.


As Associate Division Head, you will:

* Drive deep student learning, by guiding teachers to immerse students in inquiry-driven, challenging, authentic work, while meeting each student's needs
* Build a thriving culture of collaboration, constant learning and innovation among colleagues, students and families
* Lead a team of talented faculty to accomplish great things with their students, and coach teachers to continually improve
* Be an exemplary lead learner, always reflecting, growing and seeking to improve
* Enthusiastically take on the innumerable responsibilities and challenges that come with leading an innovative, top-tier school


You bring all or most of the following:

* Superb ability as a teacher, and a deep understanding of high-quality instruction in grades 6-12; expertise in inquiry-driven and interdisciplinary teaching is a great asset
* Instructional leadership skills, to guide teachers to grow in their teaching and create deeper learning for students
* Management ability, to lead teams in which teachers are engaged in their work, constantly growing and accomplishing great things together
* A missionary zeal for transforming education, and for changing the world through it
* An innovative, problem-solving approach, including in ambiguous situations that require figuring out new solutions rather than following established paths
* Intellectual curiosity and mindset of continuous learning and growth
* Skillful at working across lines of difference in a multi-cultural team
