Great Oaks Legacy Charter School is seeking an Elementary School Social Studies Teacher for the 2018-19 School year. GREAT OAKS LEGACY OVERVIEW The Great Oaks Legacy Charter School is a high-performing, innovative charter public school in Newark NJ, serving 1,600 students from Pre-K to 12th grade on five campuses across the city. Our mission is to prepare public school students for success in college. Great Oaks Legacy students aspire to be some of the highest performing students in the country. We have high academic and behavioral expectations for our students. Our students, for example, are encouraged to take multiple AP classes before they graduate. We pair rigorous curriculum and teaching with intense personal support from teachers, tutors, and staff. The school's mission is to prepare our students for college success through several key elements: Small school - Grade-level cohorts of less 100 students allow each student to feel known and cared for. Our focus is on a sense of community and relationship building with families and students. More time on task - Longer school days than traditional schools. Weekend sessions and summer school for students who are struggling. High expectations - Rigorous, differentiated, college-preparatory coursework from K-12. Advanced Placement and real college courses for all juniors and seniors. Effective Instruction - World-class teachers with clear expectations and the support they need to continuously improve.

It is a given that all of the faculty work very, very hard.
