Located in one of Indianapolis’s most underserved communities, the Avondale Meadows Middle School (AMMS) is a tuition-free, 5-8 public charter school currently in its fifth year in operation. We are diverse collection of families, educators and volunteers committed to equipping our students with the strongest possible preparation for success in Indianapolis’s most demanding, college-preparatory high schools.
AMMS employs a rigorous and engaging curriculum aligned to state standards. Our teachers use a wide breath of effective instructional strategies, innovative tools and technology and a variety of services to challenge and support students to meet ambitious academic goals. We find creative, engaging ways to involve parents in our work helping students build not only their academic skills but also habits of curiosity, kindness, focus and persistence essential to college and life success.
AMMS is looking for an upper elementary/secondary teacher to help our 5th & 6th grade scholars develop the social studies skills as well as the social skills and work habits they need to succeed in future years. Our school uses the Achievement First Social Studies curriculum. Teachers work within a team, supporting students through challenging and engaging lessons focused on specific academic skills. Teams meet almost daily to share ideas, exchange lesson plans, analyze student assessments and tailor interventions and supports to the needs of their classes.
Teams also work to involve families in support of students’ academic and social development. They work closely with our Culture Team to address specific family situations that may affect school engagement. This is an especially exciting opportunity to serve as an important contributor to a high quality school community and growing organization. It is also a chance to be part of an overall team committed to doing everything possible to ensure our students leave our school prepared for the most challenging, college-preparatory high schools in the city of Indianapolis.
