Founded by scholar and teacher John A. Browning, The Browning School has been a leader in fostering the intellectual and personal growth of boys and young men since 1888. Serving 402 students in kindergarten through Grade 12, Browning strives to combine the best of a traditional prep school environment and curriculum with imaginative teaching and a strong value system – all in a single-sex setting – to inspire wonder, self-confidence, achievement, and a strong sense of brotherhood among its students.
Located in a historic, six-story brick building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, The Browning School enrolls 122 students in the Middle School, which comprises Grade 5, Grade 6, Form I, and Form II (nomenclature that is a vestige of the days when Browning was organized in two divisions). Across all grade levels, Browning offers a traditional liberal arts curriculum that aims to develop students’ critical thinking skills and to inspire a self-directed capacity for inquiry and understanding across disciplines.
The Middle School fosters a welcoming, structured, child-centered environment where expectations are clear, yet boys have the freedom to be themselves. Teachers know every student and are sensitive to the special needs of boys, offering individualized support as students develop intellectually and grow into young men of character.
For a position to begin in July of 2018, Browning seeks a talented middle school leader with outstanding communication skills, a collaborative approach to leadership, a commitment to thoughtful educational innovation, and a fun-loving spirit. The ideal candidate will embrace the school’s culture and values, and will serve as an enthusiastic advocate for the benefits of all-boys education.
