A DIVERSITY RECRUITMENT AFFILIATEWesttown School
Located in West Chester, PA, Westtown School, a Quaker Pre-K -12th grade co-ed, private, college preparatory day and boarding school, offers a challenging and diverse curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking, collaboration, service and social action. Since 1799, we have been committed to character education and innovation. We inspire and prepare our graduates to become stewards and leaders of a better world.
OUR DIVERSITY & EQUITY
Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion — We aspire daily to celebrate differences, affirm intersectional personal identities, cultivate cultural competency, and mitigate the detrimental effects of privilege by making privilege conscious.
OUR TEACHER RECRUITMENT
Within a collaborative culture based on Quaker decision-making, the principal provides the Upper School’s primary voice regarding expectations for students, faculty, and staff, oversees the development and implementation of curriculum, supervises teachers and the teaching process, and reviews and evaluates academic and co-curricular programs. The Upper School Principal makes recommendations to the Head of School regarding the hiring and retention of division faculty and staff, and supervises the Dean of Students, Dean of Academics, Director of College Counseling, Upper School faculty, academic department chairs, and Upper School office staff.
I believe there is no better place for a young person than Westtown. As I enter my third year at this remarkable school, I am filled with admiration for my talented colleagues — teachers, coaches, advisors, deans, dorm parents, administrators, and staff members — and appreciation for all they do.
