Founded in 1920, Hewitt is an independent girls’ day school serving 523 students in grades K–12. Hewitt’s program is intentionally constructed around four academic pillars – presence, empathy, research, and purpose – that shape the way teachers teach, students learn, and, ultimately, the way both teachers and students live their lives: beyond the expected, beyond the easy answer, and beyond what seemed possible.
In keeping with its 98-year history, Hewitt’s challenging academic program celebrates the attention to each individual girl that is made possible in a small-school environment and that is realized through the work of faculty committed to helping each young woman discover her unique identity and potential.
The middle school enrolls 191 students in grades 5–8. Immersed in the research on how best to teach and support girls, the middle school faculty demonstrates that the empathic connection between girls and teachers helps them learn better, collaborate effectively, and take risks in a safe and encouraging space. In her formative middle school years, a Hewitt girl discovers the ways in which she simultaneously gives shape to, and is shaped by, her strengths and talents as well as her position in her community, culture, and history.
For a position to begin in July 2019, Hewitt is seeking an experienced middle school educational leader who is passionate about girls’ education and eager to join a thriving school community where each girl is known and empowered to achieve her best.
Acting on behalf of The Hewitt School, Wickenden Associates is actively recruiting exceptional middle school educational leaders for this appealing career opportunity. The lead consultants are Laura Hansen (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jim Wickenden (email@example.com); both may be reached at (609) 683-1355. The application deadline is January 18, 2019
