Job Description:

About our K-12 Arts Program:

Our approach to arts education in elementary school is focused on breadth of study in the arts and many varied experiences in art and art making. In middle school, our scholars focus on depth of study in the arts through rigorous, structured courses that develop skills in performance and art making, and a foundational knowledge base in the history and theoretical components of each art form. All middle school arts courses culminate with a public presentation/performance, written course exam, and performance assessment. Finally, when our scholars reach high school, the focus shifts towards college readiness in the arts through rigorous, leveled arts courses that prepare scholars for college entrance exams, college auditions, and/or portfolio submission.

At all levels, we combine skills-based learning and teaching and the Aesthetic Education approach in partnership with Lincoln Center Education. This two-pronged approach forms the basis for a well-rounded arts education continuum that explicitly incorporates discipline-specific training, essential knowledge toward artistic literacy, and creative growth. Differentiated arts professional development opportunities exist throughout the school year both in the network and with external arts education organizations, at conferences and/or specialized sessions. All Democracy Prep arts courses are based on the National Core Arts Standards and best practices within the specific arts discipline.

Who You Are


  • A systems-oriented educator with an unwavering commitment to the Democracy Prep mission of college success and authentic civic engagement for our scholars.
  • An outstanding classroom teacher who holds scholars to consistently high behavioral and academic expectations.
  • A results-driven educator with the drive to make real change in our educational system and who is hungry, humble, and smart
  • A graduate of a Bachelors degree program (required), with 2 years of urban teaching experience and state certification (preferred).

    What Youll Do


    • Assume personal responsibility for the academic progress of all students.
    • Implement a coherent, research-based curriculum.
    • Document all syllabi, lesson plans, assignments, rubrics, and other instructional materials and methods.
    • Use consistent school-wide practices and individualized methods to engage students in the classroom.
    • Create, monitor, and sustain a disciplined school culture of high academic and behavioral standards.
    • Provide structure in the classroom by developing and reinforcing school-wide rules and expectations.
    • Ensure smooth operation of all classroom instructional functions without excuses or exceptions.

    • Communicate effectively and maintain strong relationships with students, families, and colleagues.
