Founded in 1929 and ranking among the nation’s premier independent elementary schools, The John Thomas Dye School provides 336 students in grades K–6 an educational experience that is both traditional and dynamic.
Situated atop a wooded canyon on a charming 10-acre campus in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains, The John Thomas Dye School has offered generations of young people an idyllic environment for learning. The school is committed to academic excellence as well as to teaching character though its core values of courtesy, caring, consideration, cooperation, and common sense, warmly known as “the 5 C’s.”
Exceptionally well prepared for the next phase in their educational careers, JTD graduates have long been welcomed to Los Angeles’ most selective independent secondary schools.
The school’s nearly $40 million endowment and impressive annual giving history – including 17 consecutive years of 100 percent participation by faculty and parents – testify to the deep connections JTD forges among its families and faculty, past and present.
Following an extended period of leadership transition, JTD this summer will welcome new Head of School Rose Helm. She and the Board of Trustees are now seeking a new Director of Development who will spearhead efforts to devise and develop a comprehensive advancement program that builds upon past successes and reflects the school’s warm and distinctive culture.

For a position to begin in the summer of 2017, JTD seeks a a self-assured and collaborative fundraising professional who will embrace the school’s mission and core values while helping to move the school forward. JTD emphasizes participation and is committed to serving and treating all families and children equally, regardless of their capacity to give; a flashy, aggressive fundraiser would not be a good fit for the school. At its core, The John Thomas Dye School is an extraordinarily close-knit community that celebrates the magic of childhood while embracing the serious purpose and hard work of education.
