Not far from Red Rock Canyon in Southern Nevada sits a mature-for-its-years early childhood to grade 8 independent school with an amazing history behind it and an exciting trajectory in front of it.  The Alexander Dawson School, located on 33-acres in the beautiful community of Summerlin—about fifteen minutes west of the Las Vegas airport—has had the financial and operational support of the Alexander Dawson Foundation since its doors opened in 2000. In the last twenty years, the school has embraced all aspects of student-centered education and modern learning as it continues to build and improve upon an exceptional core academic program.

With Dawson’s highly respected assistant head of school—who also serves as the current director of teaching and learning—set to become Dawson’s next head of school in July, the community is seeking a forward-thinking, collaborative educational leader capable of overseeing ongoing institutional change and designing transformative professional development to a dynamic faculty.  The director of teaching and learning serves on the senior leadership team and reports to the head of school.
