Menlo School is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory school for students in grades six through twelve. Established in 1915, the School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and is a member of the National and California Associations of Independent Schools.
Menlo is dedicated to providing a challenging academic curriculum complemented by outstanding creative arts and athletic programs. The School helps students develop positive values and nurtures character development in a supportive environment that upholds the highest moral and ethical standards. Our program encourages students to reach their fullest potential and to develop the skills necessary to respond intelligently and humanely to the complexities of a diverse and increasingly interconnected world.
We are committed to being a heterogeneous and inclusive community. We believe students are better educated and prepared to succeed when the School community—students, families, faculty, administration and staff—is diverse and inclusive. Diversity benefits the entire community by providing a wide range of perspectives and experiences. We embrace a broad definition of diversity: an inclusive community comprised of people with different racial, cultural, economic and religious backgrounds, as well as different gender identities and sexual orientations. In addition, we support students with a wide variety of interests, talents, physical abilities, personalities, and politics.
We look for candidates who:
Support the organizational, academic, and emotional needs of students
Contribute to the school community by actively participating in extracurricular activities, faculty committees, and school initiatives
Show a commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity
Are comfortable with technology and its applications in the classroom, including the use of MacBooks, PowerSchool Learning, and Google tools
Manage frequent and ongoing verbal and written communications with students, parents and colleagues
Work collaboratively with other faculty members towards a common goal through active listening, sharing, and reflecting
Commit to their own professional growth and reflection
Model high ethical and moral standards
