Work at Joy

Our people love what they do and love the people they do it with more. We like to have fun and work hard. We are curious and persistent. We embrace differences and live to make an impact. We are committed to our students, the families of our students and to each other. This is #HowSchoolShouldBe.

We hear parents say how The Joy School changes the lives of their kids, but the same could be said for the teachers here. I have never worked at a place where I have felt genuinely cared for as a person. I have never worked at a place that encouraged me to not only be a better employee but a better version of myself. I have never worked at a place where I felt truly safe and loved. At The Joy School, I have not only learned how to be a better educator, but I have learned to be a better version of myself.
