Job Description

WHY TEACH AT AVENUES?

Avenues | The World School prepares students for engaged global citizenship during a time of unprecedented complexity and accelerating change, combining language immersion, interdisciplinary, project-based learning, a global curriculum, and a culture of creativity and deep collaboration. 

Avenues Shenzhen opened in August 2018, our first campus in China. Avenues Shenzhen provides a unique early childhood program, and is now expanding to serve students in all grades from grades from toddler through 12. Avenues Shenzhen furthers Avenues' longstanding commitment to developing multiple campuses in China, providing a transformative, world-focused education.

 

SECONDARY DIVISION

The Middle and Upper Grades are where our ambitious goals for Avenues graduates, defined in our mission statement, are most comprehensively realized. While in grades 6-12, we prepare students for a globally connected, innovation-driven, and largely unknown future. Our students will be: accomplished in all the academic skills you would expect, at ease beyond their borders, and confident because they excel in a particular passion. 

 

THE OPPORTUNITY

The Avenues Shenzhen learning experience is divided into three year-long themes that embody the paradigms, tensions, and values at the heart of innovation and making: Origins of Discovery (Grade 10), Roads to Innovation (Grade 11), and Building the Future (Grade 12). Each unit of study thoughtfully matches the construction of a significant invention with the study of carefully selected texts. 

As an Upper Grades STEAM Expert you will help establish a new model of high school education with innovation and making at its core by mentoring, guiding, and providing feedback as students create, build, and invent.
