Deeply committed to diversity, equity and inclusion, Phoenix schools create unprecedented pathways for our students, while providing unique opportunities for our staff as well.

Some of these opportunities include:

icon-careers-innovation Innovation within a collaborative community. Educating youth is a collaborative and creative effort; it takes a village. We encourage our staff to create and take on new projects that will benefit student engagement and achievement, whether it be designing after-school clubs as a retention effort or creating new classroom incentives for scholarly habit-building. We support teamwork through weekly department meetings and constant opportunities for cross-department collaboration.

All members of the Phoenix team embody core traits that make them excel at helping students succeed. These are the characteristics that we look for in all our potential candidates:
