Employment Opportunities

WSG periodically posts employment opportunities on Idealist.org and indeed.com.

Because the Washington School for Girls is a year-round school, we complete our hiring process for teaching positions earlier in the year than some schools on a traditional calendar.  Research shows that both teachers and students in year-round schools experience less burnout as a result of a more balanced calendar, and we know that our students perform better as a result of this schedule. We are happy to answer your questions about how our balanced calendar will benefit you as a teacher.

The Washington School for Girls is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
