We're redefining what's possible in public education.

We set out to tackle this education crisis with a groundbreaking school design that delivers a rigorous, whole-child education to students from all backgrounds. Today, as the fastest growing, highest-performing charter school network in New York, our network of 45 K-12 schools outperforms every district in the state, proving irrefutably that all children are capable of excellence.

The Success Academy High School of the Liberal Arts is our flagship high school, offering a rigorous and engaging academic experience to scholars prepared by our elementary and middle school programs. We are set apart by our intensive focus on college persistence, ensuring that our mainly minority and low-income students gain not only admission to college, but also the skills to flourish in and graduate from college in four years. We now need a results-driven High School Physics Teacher to join our school community.

In this role, you will:

- Lead whole-class instruction and instruct small groups using an inquiry-based, rigorous curriculum that inspires intellectual curiosity, reinforces the joy of learning, and enables all students to thrive;

- Prepare scholars to take the Physics AP Exam in May;
- Engage in training with school leaders to benefit from targeted, in-the-moment feedback on instruction, accelerating learning and growth with unparalleled support;
- Develop meaningful relationships with students and parents that drive students to love learning and make exceptional academic gains; and
- Join a highly motivated team committed to education reform, parent choice, and the building of exemplary schools.

We'd love to hear from you if:

- You have full-time teaching experience, preferably in Physics, with a proven record of propelling student intellectual growth;
- You possess a Bachelor’s degree in Physics or related field, with an outstanding record of academic achievement and leadership;
- You have a GPA of 3.0 or above;
- You exhibit high moral character;
- You display a passion for science;
