The Joy School Difference
The Joy School is an extraordinary place to work and make a difference in the lives of children and their families. We foster a culture of collaboration, respectfulness and inclusion. Our exceptionally low turnover rate among administration and faculty is a testament to the positive climate at the School.
The Joy School seeks employees who demonstrate outstanding skill in teaching students with learning differences. While we require a four-year degree for all faculty, it is even more important teachers demonstrate two critical qualities: compassion and analytical ability. We find that individuals who possess these two important skills find the most success and best serve our students and families.
Since its inception, The Joy School committed to providing competitive salaries and benefits for its employees, including a retirement plan, strong health care plan, life insurance, long and short-term disability and a cafeteria plan. The School is committed to professional growth for all faculty and staff and provides opportunities to attend conferences and workshops throughout the country. These opportunities for growth are based on individual needs and preferences, rather than a “one size fits all” approach.

In 2015 we were also thrilled to receive a special award for Meaningfulness.
