Atrium School is a progressive, inclusive PreK-8th grade independent school in Watertown, MA. Our program encourages academic and intellectual curiosity, creativity, and exploration while fostering each child's intellectual and personal growth.  Our students are diverse and original thinkers, who develop confidence in themselves and respect for others within a joyful, vibrant community of nurturing and challenging teachers, engaged parents, and enriching community partnerships.

Teachers in the elementary grades at Atrium work in co-teaching pairs and actively create innovative curriculum.  We seek candidates with particular strengths in humanities- and science-based central theme, literacy and science, in a classroom where social/emotional learning, collaboration, and kindness are prized.  Atrium’s program and school culture strongly cultivate inclusion and an active sense of social and environmental justice. In addition, faculty at Atrium:

  • Are passionate experts in their content areas and instructional skills; write skillfully and frequently.

  • Enjoy and have great capacity to nurture the whole child, and value the broad array of learning approaches that every child possesses.  Teachers here value the varied dimensions of student learning and progress.

  • Collaborate daily with multiple colleagues to plan and carry out complex, integrated learning experiences that cross grades and subject areas.

  • Initiate and continually plan their own growth, within a supportive atmosphere that prioritizes professional development.

We seek candidates who will add to the racial, cultural and gender diversity of the school community, and who are committed to building and sustaining a community that is richly diverse and includes a wide range of family structures, racial, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.
