Our Hiring Philosophy

STAR educators are passionate and creative, inspiring a love of learning in students every day. STAR educators are fully trained and certified in First Aid, CPR, & AED. With over 300 applications annually, we are fortunate to hire some of the best educators from across the Mid-South.


How we Hire our Educators


Through a rigorous hiring process, we evaluate educators in six main categories that align with our approach. The STAR educator:

  1. Listens to and appreciates each student as an individual

  2. Fosters social-emotional skills through every activity and assignment

  3. Uses academic standards to provide a rigorous, well-rounded education

  4. Creates hands-on learning experiences through projects and the community

  5. Partners with parents to best support their children

  6. Uses technology to enhance in-person learning, not replace it


How Educators are Empowered to be their Best


Once we hire exceptional educators, we empower them. Educators are supported by:

  1. Technology and a support team that enables them to spend more time with each student, and less time on clerical tasks

  2. 1:1 partnerships with members of our Leadership Team to develop instructional and management strategies to enhance school culture

  3. A generous annual stipend for professional development

  4. The flexibility to create meaningful experiences for their students

  5. A community with a rich variety of experiences to draw from and share best practices
