Town School, one of San Francisco’s premier K-8 independent schools, wants each boy to be engaged in an environment that weaves together collaboration, critical thinking, integrity, empathy, and creativity. These broad skills, as well as a firm grounding in core academic competencies, offer boys an excellent preparation for their further education. Town promotes social and emotional learning as a foundation of academic excellence and self-discovery. Town School prepares students to meet challenges in the world by helping them develop an appreciation for a variety of perspectives from the local to the global. Town School celebrates diversity by fostering a community of learners built on mutual respect. Learning experiences are inclusive, relevant, flexible, innovative, and adapted to reflect the needs of all kinds of learners.

It is with this backdrop that Town School is excited to begin a new chapter in educational technology.  Over the past four years under the successful stewardship of the outgoing director, the educational technology program has expanded, particularly in the areas of coding, robotics, computational thinking, and engineering.  Town seeks an educational technology leader to go even further in these critical areas of STEM education.  The next director should be well versed in project-based learning, inspiring to a diverse faculty body, and passionate about interdisciplinary STEM education.  Two areas of focus will be developing a robust technology integration program in the lower school, and deepening the coding and robotics curriculum in the upper school.  The director of technology integration and engineering thinking will report to the director of teaching, learning, and innovation, and will serve as part of the Director’s Team.
