Teacher Vacancies

The 30th Avenue School (Q300) is a citywide K-8 Gifted and Talented school in Astoria, Queens. Through the inclusion of diverse student identities, inquiry-based learning, and data-driven decision-making, Q300 will graduate students who will collaborate with others to ask meaningful questions, to solve complex problems, and to responsibly engage with their communities and beyond. By exploring who they are and who they want to be, students engage in the active process of making knowledge and better understanding the world around them in ways that drive a sense of responsibility and action.  Students at Q300 receive a comprehensive education that prepares students for competitive high schools and beyond.

 

Our community of learners is comprised of empathetic, inquisitive, dedicated educators and staff who are committed to working in a collaborative team to ensure that our students’ social, emotional, and academic needs are met.  All of our Elementary teachers and staff are trained in the community building, instructional, and discipline philosophy of Responsive Classroom.   At the Middle School, we use an Advisory Based Curriculum to support the academic and social-emotional needs of our learners.  Our school’s core values are inclusion, inquiry, and responsibility.

 

We are looking for educators with commitments to creating an environment in which every student develops strong teamwork, questioning, investigation, analysis, communication, and reflection skills through inquiry-based learning.
