Additional responsibilities may include, but not be limited to, assisting with Middle School Robotics and advising a small group of students.
The Computer Science curriculum seeks to give students a breadth of experience that will prepare them for future study in the discipline, as well as develop skills that are relevant to other areas of study. Computer Science projects are immersive and allow students to work with both hardware and software to find creative solutions to problems.
In addition to a bachelor's degree, applicants must have a deep knowledge of computer science, including AP, be committed to student-centered learning, and be able to express a love for computer science that makes learning it fun. The candidate must also possess excellent communication and collaboration skills, a global sensibility, a growth mindset, and an appreciation for the School's commitment to academic and personal excellence.
