CAREERS

Kingsley Montessori School’s mission is to engage the mind, hands, and heart of each child to nurture resilient explorers, confident learners, and empathetic citizens.

Located in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay, Kingsley is an independent day school guided by a unique blend of Montessori philosophy and innovative programming. Kingsley offers an educational program tailored to the talents, curiosity, and growth of each student. Our progressive, inquiry-based programs cultivate students’ social and academic development and prepare them to advance successfully to top public and independent schools. Our commitment to knowing every child and to partnering with parents propels each student to fulfill his or her potential.

Working at Kingsley means joining a community of students, faculty, staff, and administrators of diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and life experiences who enjoy working and learning together. As life-long learners, 71% of our faculty hold masters degrees. Our job titles do not reflect all that we do. As an independent school, Kingsley offers many opportunities to grow professionally and personally as teachers, mentors, leaders, and contributors to our community.

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 www.aisne.org, 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.
