Madison Country Day School

Madison Country Day School (MCDS), an independent day school serving pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade, is a reflection of the community that it serves: dynamic, diverse, and innovative. Set on 40 nature-rich acres with access to fields, prairies, and rivers, MCDS recently adopted the IB curriculum for its high school and is in the process of expanding its IB curriculum to the middle and lower school. MCDS sought an educational technology and instructional innovation coordinator to expand faculty partnerships with technology, provide some direct student instruction, lead a growing program, and serve as a key school administrator.

MCDS was thrilled to hire Nathan Ruhter to this position in late 2021, for a start date of July 1, 2022. The educational technology and instructional innovation coordinator reports to the head of middle school.
