Job Type



When is the last time you heard people talk about these things in relation to science—and not just in the ivory towers of the highest levels of science innovation and application but, in the more pedestrian world primary and secondary science education?

If both the idea and the challenge of wooing and romancing  the hearts and minds of young students to see and experience these things in math during some of the earliest and most formative years of their lives makes your heart sing and reinvigorates your sense of calling, this may be just the position for you!

The Cambridge School, a Christian Classical school in beautiful San Diego, CA is seeking a full-time physical sciences teacher for the 2019 Spring semester. We are a young, rapidly-growing, socio-economically and ethnically diverse school now serving students in a fully built out K-12 institution.  In our short, ten-year history, we have quickly become the school of choice for many San Diego families who are seeking both academic rigor as well as spiritual vitality as we fulfill our mission to equip students to “know, love, and practice that which is true, good and beautiful” and to prepare them to “live purposefully and intelligently in service of God and neighbor.”

We   are looking for a temporary full-time Physical Sciences Instructors to take a leadership role in teaching Physics in close  conjunction  with  AP  Calculus,  Honors  Chemistry,  and  middle  school Physical Science, in addition to launching and growing physical  science  related  co-curricular clubs and activities at the school. You will have the opportunity to coach and collaborate with other science and math teachers, shape pedagogy and strengthen the architecture of a robust physical science curriculum. The position offers an opportunity to shape and anchor a stellar physical science program, while continuing to hone science teaching skills at a school where students love to learn! This is a unique opportunity for someone to pursue his or her own intellectual passion for lifelong learning while equipping students to live purposefully and intelligently in service of God and neighbor. Successful candidates will agree wholeheartedly with our Mission and Statement of Faith and must enjoy and work well with middle school and upper school students. An advanced degree in science and at least 3 years of prior teaching experience at the secondary level are a big plus but not absolutely required.

If you could see yourself in an academically robust, collegial, collaborative, and mission-driven educational environment—one that teachers consider as a vocational destination rather than stepping stone—please send a letter of interest and your résumé or curriculum vitae to
