We are seeking bold educators for the 2022-2023 school year, both new and experienced, who are ready to take on their next challenge in changing the trajectory of students' lives in San Antonio.

  • Are you hungry for more support, coaching, and professional growth opportunities to grow as a teacher?

We serve students in grades 9-12 across all major subject areas as well as career and technical education (CTE) courses.

Our students come to us from a wide variety of backgrounds, with most coming to us as their last hope to graduate from high school.

There are so many reasons why educators choose to work in our school. Here are the top six reasons.

  1. Incredible opportunity to have a life-changing impact on students who have been at risk of dropping out of high school and provide a positive new future for them.
  2. Work in a close-knit, supportive community where you can continue to grow as an effective educator.
  3. Engage in world-class professional development and coaching.
  4. Be mentored by an experienced educator (if you are a new teacher).
  5. Earn a competitive base pay along with opportunities for performance pay based on students' growth and movement up the career ladder.
  6. Follow a clear path for upward career progression, including opportunities to become a career teacher leader and expert teacher leader.
