High school graduates who can score a 1600 on the SAT but can’t take personal responsibility for their choices? Not on our watch.
You’ve seen the horror stories: gifted and talented young people who lack the basic life skills to navigate adulthood independently. GT School is here to change that. Not only do we believe gifted & talented (GT) students are capable of performing at the highest level academically, we want to ensure they have the core skills to succeed in life. Skills like grit, determination, and time management are essential! We are developing GT students who are capable of leading, collaborating, and learning at the highest standards in every area of their lives.
We are building a team of aggressively open-minded, rule-breaking, entrepreneurial leaders to define the life skills curriculum for US K-12 students. You will spend the day creating (doing not delegating) and debating what kids really need to know to succeed and be happy in life. You’ll then build programs and workshops for the kids where they can learn and demonstrate their mastery of each component skill. And you’ll do this at scale - ensuring 10,000 kids can learn at the same time and to the same high standards.
This isn’t the role for traditional educators. We aren’t leveling the playing field or making sure everyone wins. We aren’t building a curriculum filled with academic exercises or group-work. This role will require you to deeply understand various life skills and their practical application.
We’re looking for people with experience building remote training programs and developing EdTech products, with a strong point of view on which skills kids need to succeed in life. If this sounds like a challenge that’s perfect for you, apply today!
