Overview

Career happy teacher teaching

Looking for a school that inspires? Funny, we’re looking for the same in our faculty.

Welcome to a collaborative teaching community of lifelong learners. At SAS, we value and support our faculty so they can better value and support our kids. Through our professional learning program, you’ll find the innovative, empowering energy that is infused in our student experience is found at the heart of our faculty experience as well. (As proof, take a look at our Signature Programs – most of which were born out of the passion of our teachers.) Add that to great resources and enthusiastic students, and it’s no wonder our average faculty tenure is 5.5 years. We believe you’ll be a better teacher because of SAS. And we believe we’ll be a better school because of you.

How we see the world is how we experience the world.

We believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion enrich our community and create a sense of belonging that compels each of us to grow. Therefore, we commit to a journey of community growth that is grounded in best and sustainable practices rooted in our mission and core values. We seek individuals who are ready to contribute to such an environment.
