House Parents/Teachers for 2017-2018 School Year

We typically hire two or more staff each year, usually as house parents. As a staff-run school, without a director or headmaster, all of the work of running the school, including administrative and financial management, falls to the staff. We use a consensus decision-making process, and the ability and willingness to work within this framework is essential for all staff. We all receive the same modest salary, regardless of experience or amount of time employed at the school. Room, partial board, excellent health coverage, and other benefits are provided.

It takes a lot of energy to work here. We have intense work schedules, usually working sixty or more hours per week; and since we are a community school, it can be difficult to separate work from personal time.

If you are interested in being a staff member here and participating in this vibrant community, please contact us.  Click here for an in-depth description of the position, or call us at (828) 675-4262 or email hiring@arthurmorganschool.org to request an information packet.

A resume and cover letter describing yourself, your applicable education and experience, and your interest in AMS, including the names and phone numbers of three references, can be sent to hiring@arthurmorganschool.org or:
