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.
