Employment

OAHS IS NOW HIRING FOR 2009-10

Teachers...Join Us in Creating the Renaissance Thinkers of Tomorrow!

We are offering employment opportunities for experienced teachers who are deeply committed to assuring that all students achieve high levels of academic and personal success, and to their own development as professional educators. A career at OAHS is exciting, as it offers teachers creative autonomy in the development of quality lessons, while providing the strong support of staff collaboration in ensuring students are learning in every class, every day. The day-to-day student experience at OAHS is quite different from what one might encounter at other high schools. Advisory teams will work together with the Western Aerospace Museum to maintain and develop actual museum exhibits.

Students will take courses in aviation maintenance, and business at the College of Alameda. School culture is centered on academic rigor, compassionate support for individual growth, and professional conduct. Teachers will be encouraged to experiment, take risks and fully utilize the resources provided by our community partners. The instructional program is based on integrating brain-research and best practices in the development of intentional learning environments and critical thinking. No aviation experience is required. OAHS is a comprehensive high school. The aviation components of our program are taught at the award winning College of Alameda Aviation Maintenance Technology Program. We are an equal opportunity employer.
