Employment Opportunities

 

Join us at SIS and enjoy great colleagues, a beautiful 60-acre campus, a light-filled school building, and curious and respectful students. Here we strive to stoke the creative fire within students, giving them the opportunity for innovation, and allowing them to ask questions that help them learn.

“  Rather than giving children facts to memorize and tests to take, the SIS teachers ask students questions. Why did this happen in history? Who is important? When might we need to use this math formula? How can we make the world better? SIS recognizes that children's inherent curiosity should be nurtured and valued, giving them the space to write their own stories. Through creativity and creative thinking, SIS students know that they can make a difference.
