Middle School Vacancies 2017-2018

Faculty Members

Thank you for your interest. All faculty member positions for the Middle School have been filled.​

A typical faculty teaching load at the Middle School includes:

  • A minimum of 24 periods a week and responsibility for around 60 students
  • After-school activities (four afternoons a week for two seven-week seasons)
  • Residential, supervisory and committee responsibilities
  • Advisory role to an average group of 12 students
  • Evening duty up to twice a week and weekend duty once every five or six weeks

Furthermore, faculty members are expected to attend special events and meetings including those occasionally scheduled on weekends, such as Orientation Week, faculty meetings, departmental meetings, house meetings, advisor meetings, Parents Weekend and Commencement. 

Various educational and character-building activities for students (e.g. community service) take place on weekends and during the summer. Faculty members are expected to volunteer as chaperones as per their interest and if selected to perform such duties during these trips. In short, being a teacher at King’s requires spirit and dedication. The qualities that our own faculty recognize as most essential to their success here include patience, energy, resilience, a genuine love of young people, sensitivity to cultural difference, adaptability and a commitment, in the classroom and beyond, to continued improvement.

  • Attend certain programmatic school events such as Parents Weekend, Orientation Week, Commencement, test preparation, etc. whether these are held during the week or on weekends
  • Serve as part of a weekend team that in rotation provides weekend coverage for full boarders at regular intervals throughout the year (the frequency depends on the number of teams but typically averages one weekend every four weeks)
  • Supervise dorm and/or study hall up to two evenings per week
