Teaching at Princeton Day School

At Princeton Day School, the pursuit of excellence is a cooperative process nurtured by an outstanding faculty. Our experienced teachers believe in creating a classroom atmosphere where the learning process is valued.

The world-class faculty believes strongly in professional growth and development, and teachers routinely receive in-service training, participate in conferences, attend graduate courses, and travel for enrichment opportunities—all fully supported by the school.

We are always interested in meeting outstanding teachers who are looking to teach in a supportive community of learners. Professionals with a Master’s Degree and several years of teaching experience are encouraged to apply. Princeton Day School values the contributions of teachers who:

  • Demonstrate excellence in the classroom
  • Understand the powerful influence of technology on students’ lives
  • Enjoy connecting with students outside the classroom through: advising, coaching, attending games and concerts, chaperoning events, sponsoring activities
  • Have a sense of humor and like to laugh
  • Are strongly committed to their students and colleagues

Princeton Day School actively seeks students, families, and employees who value and contribute to the fullness of a diverse community within the context of its mission. EOE.
