A Commitment to outstanding faculty

Teaching at US, at its core, is built on relationships. Our teachers make connections with their students that extend beyond the classroom. With opportunities to mentor boys through a tough stage in life, or challenging them on the athletic field, we have witnessed countless teachers who have made lifelong relationships that transcend the traditional model of a teacher-student association.

US is committed to finding outstanding faculty and supporting them. This is evident in our $100 million WE ARE US! The Campaign for University School, as supporting faculty is one of its main initiatives. We are setting the standard for faculty compensation and our faculty has engaging opportunities for both professional and personal growth. From experiences in Cambodia, to training with the most cutting-edge technology, US teachers are sometimes learning as much as their students.

While teaching at US, you are surrounded by remarkable colleagues. Authors, artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, and the like, US teachers practice what they preach. It is no exaggeration to say that our faculty members are one of the most accomplished, driven, innovative, and fun group of professionals you could be around.

  • Middle School Director - Shaker Heights Campus

    University School is seeking a Middle School Director. The primary areas of responsibility include building and maintaining an excellent middle school faculty. To this end, hiring and recruitment, retention and professional development, and performance evaluation of the faculty are critically important. The Director will also oversee, review, and be responsible for the curriculum, which includes areas beyond classroom instruction such as leadership training and the teaching of enduring values. Finally, the Middle School Director must connect in meaningful ways with the student population. By showing a personal interest in each boy, knowing his name, and establishing a clear presence, the Director has an opportunity to build a relationship with the students. The Director sets a clear tone on rules and discipline, maintains standards of behavior and decorum, and creates a context where respect for others is paramount -- all in a community where the boy is "known and loved." The Director will be as adept at leading a field trip as running a faculty meeting centered on curriculum, as comfortable with parents as with boys. The real reward for the Director of the Middle School is his/her ability to bring out the “best” in faculty and boys.
    The Director of the Middle School reports directly to the Head of the Shaker Campus. He/She has a support staff that would include an assistant, a Dean of Student Life, grade-level Deans, a learning specialist, a Middle School psychologist, and a Director of Enrichment.
