Faculty & Staff

Our teachers encourage intellectual curiosity, foster creativity and inspire the pursuit of excellence in ways that define what a world-class, future-oriented education should be. They couple high expectations for success with relentless care and support  - hallmarks of outstanding International Baccalaureate instructional practice.


Our teachers are scholars in their respective fields. This, however, does not immediately qualify them to instruct our students-they must also be experts in education; recognizing the different ways in which our students learn, and adapting their instructional strategies accordingly. All of teachers take regular IBO professional development training.


Our faculty devotes an immeasurable amount of time and energy to the education of our students. In addition to conducting classes, our teachers meet regularly with their fellow department members to discuss specific aspects of the curriculum and review developments within their disciplines. In the evenings, teachers cater to the needs of individual students during study hours, and plan their lessons. When school is not in session, our teachers pursue professional development by continuing graduate work and postdoctoral research, focusing on independent study, and attending national education conferences.
