Who we are
Opening in 2017, Claren Academy is a new, forward-looking Vancouver school. We value the standard curriculum and the teaching of more modern skills. We approach cumulative subjects (such as math and reading) in an individualized way, to ensure that no student has gaps in foundational knowledge. We believe that exams and grading still have value. We encourage playfulness and creativity. We are seeking educators who share our vision, and who are passionate about teaching in an environment that values creativity and embraces technology. Join our team and take this unique opportunity to help shape a school from the ground up.
What we look for
Our educators are the face of Claren Academy, and as such they must exhibit passion for the vision of the school, and must demonstrate strong interpersonal skills with families and other staff. As team members of a new organization, our teachers must take initiative, be self-motivated, and be examples of the same enthusiasm and work ethic we expect from our students. In return, staff will receive strong support from our Board of Directors in terms of professional development, classroom resources, and other key decisions.
