Lesley Ellis School, located in Arlington, MA, is a Preschool through Grade 8 independent school. We seek candidates who will bring expertise and enthusiasm to the school community and will have the desire to work closely with all staff to maintain a healthy school environment.

Respecting and embracing differences has been at the core of a Lesley Ellis education since the school’s early days. Our anti-bias curriculum is rooted in a developmental model of learning that engages children’s innate desire to observe, question, consider, and eventually think deeply about complex interpersonal and societal issues. In 2005, we received the Leading Edge Award for Equity and Justice from the National Association of Independent Schools, and we continue to learn and work against systems of injustice, including racism, by practicing behavior that demonstrates appreciation for multiple perspectives and engaging in conversations and actions that confront bias at all developmental levels.
