Middle School Math Associate
At Success Academy, we believe that mathematics teaching should actively engage scholars in learning experiences that stimulate curiosity, inquiry, enjoyment, and a deep understanding of mathematics. This comes from instruction that goes beyond teaching math as a series of procedures, shortcuts, or card tricks. Instead, it is our core mission that mathematics education should prepare scholars to be confident users of mathematics, powerful quantitative thinkers, and productive problem solvers. As a Middle School Math Associate, you will join a team that is transforming the way secondary mathematics is taught.
At Success Academy, we are redefining what’s possible in public education. Since opening our first school in Harlem in 2006, we have swiftly grown to 41 high-performing schools, from Bed-Stuy to the Bronx, serving approximately 14,000 kids. We are scaling to 100 great schools serving 50,000 children across New York City, bringing transformational change here and across the country. We believe all children, regardless of zip code or family income, deserve the life-changing opportunities that a world-class education brings.
In all grades, pre-K through 12, our exploration-driven curriculum focuses on the whole child and includes chess, art, and other specialized subjects that bring excitement to the school day and foster a lifelong love of learning. To achieve exceptional results for children, we hire the best, and the brightest. We value excellence, ethics, and celebrate diversity, and are relentlessly committed to improving ourselves and our work to enhance the lives of our scholars.
