MS Teachers & staff

Our Faculty and Staff are Highly Qualified, Talented, and Motivated

Our faculty and staff are highly qualified, talented, and motivated. To that end, our administrators follow a rigorous and deliberative screening and hiring process. This approach results in a positive and cooperative environment, where faculty and staff set clear, high expectations for themselves and for students based on their mastery of classical and character education. The faculty help one another maintain these high standards by meeting for professional development sessions, practicing collaborative team-teaching, and taking advantage of opportunities for ongoing education. In addition, they use each other’s feedback to adjust and improve the middle school experience.
