Who You Are
Impact Public Schools (IPS) is looking for a diverse group of experienced educators with a track record of closing the opportunity gap and who are seeking work in a mission-aligned organization. If you have a fierce commitment to equity and are passionate about rigorous academics paired with social emotional learning, our school may be the perfect fit for you.
Who We Are
Impact Public Schools operates three public charter schools in the Puget Sound region. Our schools are incredibly diverse: 85% of our scholars are students of color and we have over 13 home languages spoken on our campuses. Impact’s culturally responsive academic model is rooted in four key elements: social-emotional learning, personalized learning pathways, project based-learning, and a joyful learning environment. Impact’s personalized approach to instruction ensures that every scholar gets the support they need to succeed academically. Impact scholars of all races, from low-income families, and for whom English is a second language have made gains that are larger than expected for students attending the nation’s highest-performing schools.
