Job Description:
Organization Overview:
Atlas is an intentionally diverse, year-round public elementary school that opened in the fall of 2021 for curious, creative, and compassionate kids.  Atlas’ mission is to educate the whole child by combining a rigorous academic program with real-world, place-based learning experiences so all students thrive in middle school, high school, and beyond.  Atlas’ academic program is designed to spark creative and critical thinking and engage students in challenging work that is connected across multiple disciplines.  Students will participate in authentic, hands-on experiences that are rooted in the local context of St. Louis.  As a result, Atlas students will produce beautiful work that is meaningful to them and their community.  Our year-round calendar gives students opportunities to participate in unique experiences that aren’t possible with a traditional school calendar.  All of this leads to students who are academically exceptional, passionate about learning, and truly prepared to thrive.
Atlas’ model is diverse by design, meaning we not only draw students from all neighborhoods in the city, but we practice equity in all that we do - ensuring every child is able to access and receive an individualized education that builds off their unique strengths, skills and passions.  For us, equity means that every child receives exactly what they need to be successful, even if that varies across lines of difference, so that each individual student has an equal chance to thrive. By providing equitable outputs of time, resources, and positive experiences for students, we will work towards accomplishing educational equity so that a child’s outcome (i.e. well-being, academic proficiency, college graduation rate, future income) is not predetermined by race, socio-economic status, or any other factor.
