Are you on a mission to become an educational game changer? We are looking for truly dynamic, innovative, educational thought leaders and teachers to join the Science faculty at Oak Meadow High School. We are in the midst of an exciting endeavor to reimagine our educational approach in order to push the envelope of project based learning (https://www.bie.org/about/what_pbl andhttps://www.edutopia.org/video/5-keys-rigorous-project-based-learning) and its power to connect students to the important social and cultural issues of our time.

Our rigorous private independent distance learning school is the only distance program to earn accreditation by the prestigious New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Student engagement is designed in the spirit of the Harkness table, with the goal of challenging students to be engaged citizens of the world. We expect our students to leave Oak Meadow as free thinkers who are empowered to critically reflect on their world, a mindset that allow them to be active decision-makers who help shape their community rather than falling into prescribed notions and career trajectories.
