How to Apply

Northwest offers a vibrant intellectual home, warm inclusive community, and a vital and engaged faculty. We offer excellent pay and benefits and have a long tradition of supporting the professional development of our employees.

At The Northwest School, students and employees come from multiple regions and backgrounds. We speak different languages and follow different cultural paths. And through these differences we learn and grow. A commitment to diversity lies at the heart of who we are and we actively encourage applicants who have a similar commitment to issues of diversity and social justice to apply to open positions.

We are seeking qualified individuals to help carry out the mission of the school. We encourage you to review the job postings below and to apply to those which you believe would best utilize your talents. Candidates who require assistance with the online recruiting process may contact the Office of Human Resources at hr@northwestschool.org.

Candidates should be prepared to answer several written questions when they apply online, such as:

  • What factors influenced you to choose this career path?
  • The heart of the independent school community is a sense that each person in the community--student, parent, teacher, support faculty, community member--sees themselves as a fully included and respected member. List at least three issues involving equity or inclusion you might encounter in this role.
  • Please describe a pivotal learning or professional development experience you have had and how it impacted your thinking and practice.
  • Please choose one of the following values of The Northwest School: a commitment to social justice, a commitment to environmental sustainability, or a commitment to a global perspective and give an example of how you have incorporated that value into your curriculum.
  • Please provide two examples of times when you have altered or changed your practice because of the diversity of the group with whom you were working. What changes did you make? Did they have the effects you hoped for at the time? What did you learn from each situation? How would you expect to apply what you learned from these situations to the position for which you are applying?
