Positive Outcomes Charter School is adding to our All-Star team of creative and innovative educators who love working with young people, and who are courageous risk-takers in the classroom. We currently have an opening for a Full-Time High/Middle School Certified Social Studies Teacher. This teacher will also serve as an advisor to a small group of students.

Positive Outcomes Charter School is a small charter school that opened in September 1996. Positive Outcomes is not an alternative school. We work with students who are struggling to find success in traditional classrooms. Our school is comprised of approximately 75% of students with disabilities which qualify for services.

Positive Outcomes is an incredible place for young people to design their own futures, and will continue to serve as a model for the education of students who have had some difficulty achieving success in traditional school settings. We believe students learn best when they are engaged in rich and connected learning experiences that allow them space to think, to create, and to share. We also support experiential learning and believe students should leave the school building often for fieldwork, community service, and internships.
