Search for Head of School for 2019
The Cambridge School of Weston is a leading progressive independent school. CSW offers an innovative and rigorous academic program that fosters critical thought, hands-on experiential learning and deep academic inquiry. CSW currently serves a population of 238 day and 91 boarding students.
The school, established in 1886, remains dedicated to fostering individual strengths and multiple intelligences through a wide range of challenging courses and a variety of teaching styles. The unique Module System promotes deep learning and innovative teaching in all disciplines. Classes are an hour-and-a-half long, and students concentrate intensely on three subjects at a time. The curriculum is diverse and interdisciplinary, combining demanding academics with extensive offerings in the visual and performing arts. Students are encouraged to explore new educational experiences and areas of study and to be proactive in planning their academic schedules. The curriculum offers more than 300 courses.
No two students’ schedules are alike. Each student works with an advisor and the Academic Office to create a unique schedule that balances challenging academic requirements with the student’s personal interests. Ultimately, each student’s schedule aims to provide balance, rigor, and stimulation throughout the year.
Eighty percent of the faculty holds advanced degrees; they are published authors, accomplished artists and musicians, and respected scholars in their field of study.
The Cambridge School of Weston is located on 65 acres of wooded campus, about 12 miles outside of Boston. The campus is visually appealing and reflects significant facility additions, most recently a comprehensive Health and Fitness Center.
