The School House, Northport, New York


Elementary (6-12)

Listed 8 November 2018

The School House is a revolutionary private school opening in September 2019. Backed by some of the biggest thinkers in American pedagogy, TSH is the initial training ground for the development of the American Emergent Curriculum (AEC). AEC combines a strong-base of Montessori academics and philosophies with a Reggio-Emilia atelier, nearly four hours a week of performing arts, movement and sports, daily Socratic Method, problem and project-based learning and an outstanding prepared environment including morning piazza provocations, an outdoor nature park, a little blue bus for frequent field trips and visiting scientists from around the world.

The School House is currently fully staffed with AMI certified teachers with the exception of two (2) lower elementary teachers and one (1) upper elementary teacher.  Candidates should have the following qualifications:

  • This pilot school and curriculum is building what we've needed to achieve in the U.S. since Dr. Montessori's initial visit in 1911 - a bridge between scientific pedagogy and American traditions. Candidates should be out-of-the-box thinkers with a deep passion to change the education dynamic in the U.S.
  • Candidates should be drama-free, political agenda-free, ego-free and ready to roll up your sleeves to create something new.  If it's not about the children, we won't be talking about it

If you fit the above criteria, please apply immediately. We want you!
