Job Description:

Description:Who We AreNavigator Schools is a network of public charter schools that operates four high performing schools, three K-8 schools in the Northern Central Coast area and a K-6 in Hayward. Navigator exists because a group of concerned educators and parents no longer wanted to wait for someone else to figure out how to improve the quality of public school education. They were determined to demonstrate that ethnicity, early English fluency, and socio-economic status are factors outside the classroom that may challenge, but should not predetermine, a student's academic success. With that determination, our first site was founded.After studying best practices from schools throughout the United States, we created a rigorous K-8 full inclusion model that anticipates and meets the needs of all students. Our students enjoy research-based, personalized learning supported by a strong instructional staff. Our staff is supported by extensive professional development and regular coaching at every level of the organization which leads to phenomenal results for all students.Navigator Schools is committed to closing the opportunity gap through highly effective, student focused teaching methods, and boasts some of the top test scores in California.
