Careers at Washington Latin

Our school’s model relies on teachers committed to our classical model. In recruiting new faculty members, we seek those with a liberal arts background, an understanding of how to deliver this kind of education, and an excellent knowledge of their own subject matter. Just as important, we want those who can contribute team players and — above all — those who love children and work with them with patience, respect, and deep commitment to each student’s success.  Our teachers are role models and leaders to our students, reflecting the values of our classical education.

We have a dedicated and talented team of administrators who work to support students and faculty in all they do. Our staff come from a variety of backgrounds – primarily education, non-profit management, and business.

  • Want to work in a non-selective urban school with a diversity of students
  • Familiarity with and support for our classical mission
