Greenhills School seeks a visionary, dynamic, experienced, passionate, and nurturing leader for its next Head of the Middle School.
Greenhills School, an independent day school enrolling approximately 680 students in 6th through 12th grades, seeks a visionary, dynamic, experienced, passionate, and nurturing leader for its next Head of the Middle School. We seek a pedagogical leader and caretaker who has the capacity to form meaningful relationships with 300 creative and curious middle school students from diverse backgrounds and who has the qualities that make for a natural instructional leader amongst a strong team of extraordinary teachers.
Our middle school program includes instruction in languages, humanities, math, science, wellness, and the arts which support our middle school students in developing interests, passions and skills across a range of disciplines. We recognize each student’s areas of strength and growth and want all to have a deep sense of belonging, and feel affirmed with respect to their individual identities.
Teachers at Greenhills provide students with rich and meaningful learning experiences that inspire them to be lifelong learners and challenge them to take their places as informed, responsible, engaged citizens of their local, national, and global communities. Our middle school program reinforces the school’s broader mission of encouraging students to develop their full potential as curious, creative, and responsible citizens who respect all individuals and their differences, and whose meaningful and balanced lives will better the world.
Greenhills School is eager to consider applications from groups traditionally underrepresented in independent school communities. We want a diverse mix of talented people who want to join us as student centered educators and role models who bring joy and good humor to our classrooms, fields, and offices, employ a broad array of effective instructional methods, work collaboratively with colleagues, seek and respond to student feedback, and commit to reflective practice and continual growth. We pride ourselves on being a warm and welcoming inclusive community.

The Head of the Middle School sits on the School’s Head’s Council, oversees the day-to-day operations of the middle school, and works collaboratively with teachers and school leaders to foster the mission of the school.
