  • Anywhere

The College Preparatory School

The College Preparatory School, an independent high school in Oakland, California, seeks a full-time Spanish teacher beginning in August of 2018.  Candidates should have a minimum of three to five years of experience teaching Spanish to students at the secondary or college level. Some graduate training in math is preferred. They should have a strong interest in working in a multicultural community and be eager to embrace spirited intellectual challenges in a rewarding academic environment.  College Prep is a community of life-long learning and actively encourages and supports the professional development of all of its members.


Full-time teachers teach four classes, with either two or three preps. Section sizes average 16 students. Applicants must be willing and able to teach across the Spanish curriculum (level 1 through A.P.) and to introduce students to the cultures of Latin America and Spain. The goals of the Spanish program are to create full-immersion classrooms, to build towards teaching advanced listening, reading, writing and speaking skills, and to promote global perspective among students. Our Spanish and other World Language teachers work closely with one another, honing and reshaping curriculum, assessments and assignments.


Candidates should be eager to spend additional time getting to know and help students outside of the classroom. College Prep teachers also take a share of other departmental, committee, and general school responsibilities, mostly during the 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. school day. Teachers thrive at College Prep when they partake in the opportunities offered by a rich co-curricular program and a tightly knit school that embraces equity and inclusiveness, and actively seeks to strengthen its ties to the greater Oakland community. The salary is competitive. Benefits include medical and dental coverage, a retirement plan for eligible employees, and most pleasantly and collegially, a prepared lunch every day.


Founded in 1960, The College Preparatory School is an independent coeducational secondary school created for intellectual risk-takers who want to pursue a purposeful education with kindred peers. Our mission is to prepare students for productive, ethical lives in college and beyond by fostering a stimulating education within an atmosphere of consideration, trust, and mutual responsibility.  As an equal opportunity employer, College Prep does not discriminate in its hiring of employees on the basis of race, color, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, creed, national origin, citizenship, marital or veteran status, age, or disability.  We actively seek diversity among our faculty and administration as well as among our students.
