Asheville School, a deliberately small, co-ed boarding school of 285 students founded in 1900, located on three hundred idyllic acres in the midst of the mountains of Western North Carolina (in a city the New York Times has aptly claimed is the "Paris of the South" and now known as Beer Capital USA), has an opening for a full-time math teacher. We are looking for candidates who visibly love working with adolescents, who embrace the newest pedagogies, and who are eager to coach (track, wrestling, soccer, football, and lacrosse are most pressing; we have needs in basketball, field hockey, and volleyball; documented mountaineering skills are also viewed favorably: mountain biking experience is a genuine plus) and to live on dorm. Asheville School seeks candidates fully committed to investing energy in all three phases of the School's mission ("mind, body, and spirit").

Mathematics Teacher—AP Statistics Track

We have redesigned our curriculum for all students at Asheville School to take and to succeed in an AP math course by their senior year. Four years ago, we added an AP Statistics Track, which focuses on problem-solving, project-based learning, statistics, technical writing and presentations, and critical thinking. We have embraced the flipped-classroom model as one tool, and the use of technology to complement student learning. The ideal candidate will have experience using these pedagogies. This track—Quantitative Methods 1 and 2; Functions, Finance, and Statistics; and AP Statistics—is now extremely popular with many of our students. (Approximately 60% of our students are in this track.)

Mathematics Teacher—AP Calculus Track

This position is for a teacher able to teach upper level math such as AP Calculus and/or AP Statistics. AP Computer Science is also a possibility. The ideal candidate will have a graduate degree and several years of teaching experience, preferably in independent schools. Experience with leading exceptional students to reach even higher, such as through math team experiences and/or extracurricular offerings, is preferred.
