Transform urban education and teach at Perspectives Charter Schools. Founded in 1997 by two Chicago Public School teachers who believe that education is the great equalizer, Perspectives is dedicated to educating Chicago’s youths in grades six through 12. Currently, we educate more than 2,300 students and employ 300 professionals, including 163 education staff.What makes Perspectives unique is our signature social-emotional learning curriculum A Disciplined Life® -- dedicated to preparing students for success in college and life.
Perspectives has built an impressive track record of accelerating student growth in both academics and character development. On account of our committed educators, in June 2010 we celebrated the first high school graduations at the Auburn Gresham campus, effectively doubling the graduation rate for neighborhood students in just a matter of four years. Perspectives high school graduates go to college. It is an expectation.

Why Teach at Perspectives?
Be part of a team of like-minded individuals dedicated to ensuring that all students succeed
Talented and caring teachers are the foundation of our success at Perspectives Charter Schools. Our diverse staff is committed to the principles of A Disciplined Life® and academic rigor to prepare all students for college and life.
Work with students and parents who are invested in their education
Parents and students meet with our teachers before the school year begins to set goals for the year. And, 85 percent of parents attend parent-teacher conferences twice a year.
Our unique and highly effective urban education model starts with students in sixth grade, allowing our teachers to effectively improve student growth both academically and socially over time.
Have the support and strategic professional development you need to be successful
Teachers prepare for the school year three weeks prior to the first day of school. All content teams are led by experienced "Instructional Leaders," who encourage and guide teacher development in methods of teaching and curriculum design and implementation throughout the year.
If you are interested in making a difference, building futures and developing potential, consider a career with Perspectives Charter Schools.
