City Neighbors Charter School

Principal Job Posting

March, 2014

City Neighbors Charter School, a progressive urban school serving a diverse community in Northeast Baltimore, is seeking a new school leader. A strong school, recently renewed for a full five year term, we are known for our strong faculty, loving community, and the work of our students.

At City Neighbors, we have taken a stand for schooling rooted in the vision of the child as powerful, creative, capable, and deserving of the deepest respect. We have taken a stand for the prevalence of student voices over teacher voices, for the arts as a central component to all teaching and learning, for deep project studies rather than survey courses, for ensuring that standardized testing does not drive teaching and learning, for involving parents and teachers as co-creators of their school, for the importance of carefully designed and beautifully created physical spaces for children, and the importance of play, fun, imagination, and creation in learning for all children.
