Director of Studies/Curriculum, Division Head/Principal, Other
On top of being an amazing school, Hathaway Brown is an amazing place to work. Ask our faculty what they like best about HB, and you might hear comments about on-site child care, yoga and fitness classes for employees, monthly chair massages offered by an HB alumna, the fabulous lunches served every day in our beautiful dining hall, or about the myriad professional development opportunities for employees. You may hear how employees are encouraged to dream big, try new things and to make the most of themselves as educators and human beings.
But what you'll hear again and again is how much the faculty enjoy the passion and perseverance of the students and how much they enjoy being surrounded by some of the brightest, friendliest, hardest working people anywhere. The perks of this place make you want to check it out; the nurturing and intellectual nature of the community makes you want to stay for decades.

About Hathaway Brown School
Hathaway Brown is a school for girls, and it's so much more. It’s a school for scientists and writers and artists and budding entrepreneurs. It’s a training ground for athletes and dancers and musicians and actresses. It’s a place where young people are empowered to ask questions, challenge conventions and explore opportunities.
And everything we do is guided by our motto: Non Scholae Sed Vitae Discimus - We Learn Not For School, But For Life.
Since 1876, HB has given students the tools they need to confidently embrace all the possibilities that exist for them beyond our Shaker Heights campus. The faculty’s dedication to hands-on experiential learning at all levels can be observed every day in the classrooms, libraries, science labs, theatres, dance studios and art rooms, as well as on the athletic fields. In addition to the superior academic preparation they receive, at every turn HB students are inspired to become the best people they can be. We encourage girls of all ages and boys in our Early Childhood program to take chances, stretch their minds, work together, and pick themselves up and start over when they need to. The results of this philosophical approach are both ...astounding and humbling. Through the years, we’ve amassed more than our fair share of awards and accolades in every discipline you can imagine. Students continually perform with notable distinction on high-level tests and in the rate at which they’re accepted to their first-choice, top-tier colleges and universities. But no matter how well they fare by these measures, all of our students are able to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom to their lives. They know how to test theories, challenge conventions, find beauty in overlooked places, implement creative solutions, and lend a hand where it’s needed. Wherever they go from here, HB graduates bring strong character, unparalleled intelligence, unbridled enthusiasm, and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge along with them.
