Upper School Teaching Positions

Founding of Nueva’s Upper School Division:

True to Nueva’s founding principles, our Upper School offers opportunities for deep, rigorous learning that includes inquiry-based, interdisciplinary studies as well as mastery of traditional disciplines. We offer accelerated and extended experiences where gifted and talented students design, discover, reflect, and apply their ideas in practical and real-world contexts. The physical proximity and institutional connections to world-renowned universities, cultural organizations, high-tech companies, healthcare institutions, and the can-do spirit of Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area offer a dynamic entrepreneurial community for collaborative partnerships.

We prepare our graduates to be leaders in their chosen fields, certain of what drives them, and ready to pioneer new paths to success. We have designed a high school that responds to the pressing social, emotional, and learning needs of today’s teens, preparing them to direct their college educations and to live well as responsible human beings and global citizens. Nueva students learn to address difficult challenges with optimism and resiliency. Our community is a personal and curricular partnership, where students encourage each other as they, alongside their teachers, continually think, construct, create, and re-think the best ideas and opportunities to explore their own passions and connect deeply with themselves and others.

Nueva’s Upper School opened in August 2013 after many years of discussion and comprehensive study, demographic analysis, feedback from alumni, consultation with educational and industry thought-leaders, and visits to more than 50 model high schools across the country and around the world. A seminal point of validation came from Nueva's 2011 Presidents' Roundtable, during which university presidents and college deans from some of the country's most respected institutions convened at our Hillsborough campus to discuss the future of education and affirmed the need for a new high school model like ours to better prepare students for this new century. The opportunity of a lifetime, to reimagine high school, is now a reality. We welcomed our inaugural ninth grade class of seventy-seven students in 2013. This year, we have a total of 236 students comprising our ninth, tenth and eleventh grades. Our extraordinary faculty models a spirit of deep inquiry and inspires students to be active and passionate learners. Teachers serve as mentors, guides and partners in the learning process, crafting and facilitating experiences through which students deepen their understanding and build transferable skills.

2017–2018 I-Lab Engineer

The Position:

I-Lab Engineer ... Teacher ... Student Project Facilitator … Tinkerer … Builder … Designer … Engineer …

Do you love to tinker and build? Does the latest issue of Make Magazine send you to your workbench? The internationally-known Nueva School is looking for you! Our kids love to invent and create. We're looking for someone with a similar mindset (and a lot more years of training) to help assist and guide our gifted middle school students. Working in our 3,500 square foot state-of-the-art Innovation Lab, designed by Stanford's d.school, you will have the opportunity to foster our students' curiosity, design skills, and ability to create working solutions for real world problems.

About the Innovation Lab:

In one day in the I-Lab, you might hear one group of students strategizing how to teach other teens to manage stress, help another student laser engrave a mirror for their own interpretation of Dante’s Inferno, see a student prototyping a better drill rack, and move through a crowded room as the robotics team teaches their new members how to commit their code to GitHub.  As an I-Lab engineer you create and maintain the classes and spaces that make those experiences happen.  The I-Lab was built on the realization that we do not know what specific skill will be most useful to someone graduating from high school in 2027, but that solving problems would never go out of style. In the I-Lab, students learn to embrace Design Thinking as a nonlinear process that provides mindsets and techniques to help solve open-ended problems. Through working with real problems and users, students develop their empathetic and questioning mindsets and learn how to brainstorm, prototype and iterate solutions. 

Job Description:

  • Job may include full-time or part-time work, including role(s) as: I-Lab Engineer (teacher), Associate Teacher, and/or Shop Manager, depending on skills and interests of the candidate.
  • May include associate teacher training as part of Nueva’s Innovative Teacher Program, depending on skills and interests of the candidate.
  • Includes great benefit package.

General Responsibilities:

  • Develop and teach engineering classes in a variety of grades, elementary through high school

  • Create and maintain a culture of tidiness and respect for the workspace
  • Maintain machine tools
  • Source and help students source and purchase materials and tools
  • Model flexibility in implementing best learning practices
  • Support the wellbeing of all students
  • Demonstrate interest and ability to serve as an advisor to students, lead student activities, serve as a club advisor, and contribute beyond the classroom to support school programs and activities
  • Participate actively in other aspects of the student experience and school functioning: chaperoning trips and events, serving on committees, and developing new programs at the school
  • Lead by example in your commitment to Nueva’s mission:

“Our school community inspires passion for lifelong learning, fosters social and emotional acuity, and develops the student’s imaginative mind.”
