The Office of New Schools (ONS) selects and supports leaders to open high-performing new schools. Creating and leading a new school is a unique opportunity to transform students' lives in historically underperforming districts by effectively building a school community that aligns with a unique vision from the ground up. We look for experienced educators and school leaders who possess a dynamic combination of instructional and personal leadership skills and a strong entrepreneurial spirit.
New school leaders possess:
- A clear vision for what will make their school special and successful, based on deep knowledge and evidence-based best practices
- Proven ability to lead adults to collectively improve student outcomes
- Deep commitment to serving all children, particularly in the hardest-to-serve districts.
The work is intense, demanding and incredibly rewarding. We need leaders who will work with passion and dedication to ensure their schools are transforming the lives of students, and are ready to take on the task of creating and leading a new school.
