Work at Stone


It takes a special kind of teacher to work at a school like ours.  



The Stone Independent School is a progressive, interdisciplinary 9-12 independent school which believes that all students learn best by doing. It is our mission to graduate students who are prepared for college and prepared for a world beyond college, who practice empathy, ethicality, and gratitude, and who are committed to making the world a measurably better place -- and we hire accordingly.

The faculty at Stone is comprised of innovative educators who like to ask "why" -- about pedagogy, about school culture, about education.  Stone Faculty are experts in their field, they believe schools can be bigger and more creative endeavors, they are flexible and joyful, they are committed to social justice, and they laugh an awful lot.  Stone faculty get to work early, stay late, collaborate across Lancaster, help paint classrooms, work in our community garden, serve lunches and attend (very small) school dances and run clubs and travel around the world.

Currently, Stone is hiring for the 2019-2020 school year:

  1. A full-time Mathematics teacher;

  2. A full-time Physics teacher;

  3. A full-time Spanish Language teacher;

  4. A full-time Chinese Language teacher;

  5. A full-time Art and Music teacher;

  6. A full-time Humanities instructor.
