We limit class size to ten at Preschool, 15 students for grades K-5 and Middle School School core classes may be larger, depending upon subject area.

  • – Awards or other recognition from colleagues and students;

  • – Professional leadership abilities and experience;
  • – Experience recruiting and evaluating other great teachers;
  • – A global perspective, and ideally international work experience;

If you love helping students push their boundaries — and want to help us build a school that attracts leading teachers — then we invite you to contact us. Franklin Academy is an independent and open community. We warmly welcome applicants of all backgrounds and beliefs.
