  • Science Department Head

    Science Department Head
    Founded in 1883, Allen-Stevenson is a K-9 independent school for boys with an enrollment of 415 students. Located in the heart of New York City’s Upper East Side, the School is a joyful, inclusive community. Our urban setting affords many educational and cultural advantages.
    For the 2019-2020 school year the School seeks a Science Department Head to lead its science program within the context of a broad, age-appropriate curriculum that incorporates Academics, Athletics and the Arts. Our approach to the education of boys fosters “many ways to be a boy” and offers them many ways to be successful. We look for a strong leader with a comprehensive vision, an authentic listener and bridge builder who can help science teachers collaborate, not solely in science but across our entire curriculum.
    We also look for ways to incorporate the principles of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) into our Science curriculum, especially the affirmation that science education should emphasize student outcomes and explicitly not curriculum. Current related K-9 program initiatives include social-emotional learning, guided inquiry, robotics and STEAM.  Also, Allen-Stevenson is fortunate to be able to incorporate up-to-date technology into its program, including a 1:1 laptop program for grades 4 though 9, interactive boards in every classroom, digital microscopes in science labs, and other such  resources where appropriate.
    The School
    Allen-Stevenson is in the midst of a very exciting period in its growth. Guided by our new 20/20 Vision, Building Boys Who Make the World a Better Place, a new vision statement that extends the School’s mission, we “help every boy achieve his best potential within an inclusive community of joyful learners and their families.” A small, select group of teachers is helping the administration to develop priorities that will achieve the Vision. In addition, the Board of Trustees has just launched a separate Strategic Planning  process that will recommend goals and priorities for the School’s future.
    Allen-Stevenson is also in the middle of a transformative building expansion project, which includes new flexible Science & Engineering classrooms, as well as a teaching greenhouse that will accommodate half-classes. As we look to integrate the many important components of the educational program, a new master schedule will also be developed to use our facilities and time resources most effectively and equitably.
