Kingsley Montessori School is a Toddler through Sixth Grade independent school of 300 students in Boston’s historic Back Bay. Our mission is to engage the mind, hands, and heart of each child to nurture resilient explorers, confident learners, and empathetic citizens.

A diverse, equitable, and inclusive community is integral to fulfilling our mission. Kingsley Montessori School strives to be a place where each person feels a sense of belonging and respect, recognizes and appreciates the richness that is added to our community through diversity, and is empowered to take action against injustices. We actively create such a community through our programming, our professional development, and our hiring, admissions, and governance practices. Kingsley’s high standards of professionalism are maintained through supportive and ongoing supervision and evaluation, development, and growth.

Please note: Independent schools typically begin hiring teachers for the next school year in January/February, and hiring is usually complete by May/June. We encourage you to bookmark and frequently check this page in the winter and spring. You may also want to review positions at AISNE, the non-profit accrediting body for independent schools in our region. Due to the volume of applications we typically receive, we are unable to respond to candidate emails or phone calls about searches in progress.
