We are seeking a middle school (grades 6-8) division head beginning in the 2018-19 school year. The middle school division head will join our team of 13 dedicated administrators who oversee the operations of The Harker School and the fulfillment of our mission. Specifically, the middle school division head serves as a liaison between our middle school parents and the school, and oversees that division’s academic programs and community.
The Harker School is a coeducational, non-sectarian, college preparatory school serving preschool through grade 12. Harker has four campuses (preschool, lower, middle and upper schools) located within minutes of each other in San Jose. For more than 100 years, Harker's mission has remained constant: to create an environment that promotes academic excellence, inspires intellectual curiosity, expects personal accountability and forever instills a genuine passion for learning. We’re tremendously proud of our century-old tradition of excellence in education, and the international recognition our students, faculty and programs have earned.
Kindness, respect, honesty, integrity and personal accountability have been at the heart of a Harker education since the school’s founding in 1893. Students encourage and support one another and celebrate each other’s efforts and successes with hugs and high-fives. It’s a supportive, safe, fun and nurturing place where kids make friends for life with their peers, their teachers and the staff.
