Description

Monticello Academy is excited to open a new campus in North Davis county (West Point) for the 2020-2021 school year. We are looking for dynamic K-6 educators who are ready to join a fantastic team teaching the best curriculum available.

We follow the Core Knowledge Sequence, which spells out rich content knowledge for every grade level. Students don't just learn bland "skills." They learn real history, science, and literature in every grade level, from Ancient Egypt in 1st grade to Medieval History in 4th grade. Every year students delve into exciting content knowledge that they just don't get in other schools.

In addition, we use Singapore Math, which focuses on hands-on learning, conceptual understanding, and mental math/math fluency (yes, our students know their math facts inside and out!). It is the most successful math curriculum in the world and it is as fun to teach as it is for students to learn.

We are a college-prep school, which means we challenge students; hold them to high, measurable standards; and accelerate learning wherever possible. We also offer rich specials courses that support our Core Knowledge program. Students get consistent, quality instruction in visual art, music, Chinese, and physical education. Our specials teachers collaborate regularly with classroom teachers to integrate with and support the core curriculum.

Our regular paid collaboration time and effective meeting practices make the teamwork experience unlike any other school. We are positive, take ownership of our results, and support each to make amazing things happen for kids. We have outperformed neighboring schools for over a decade, and we are looking for the teachers who can create another high-performing campus in Davis County.

We strive to create the right balance of collaboration, direction, support, and autonomy, and we give teachers many opportunities to lead and create, especially as we build a new school in West Point.

Even though we are a charter school, we offer Utah Retirement System benefits. We offer competitive base salaries, contribute monthly to a Health Savings Account, and our employees have never paid anything for health insurance.
