Teachers are the Heart of the School

At Latin, we understand that our teachers are the heart of the school. They provide context, content and coherence to the learning environment, serve as role models and shape students' lives forever. Believing in each student's ability to achieve, and recognizing the many varied gifts of children, our faculty create myriad opportunities for our students' success.

It is Latin's goal to attract, recruit and retain an exceptional faculty that is inspiring, diverse and committed to the school's mission. We support our teachers by welcoming them into an environment that encourages them to excel and by maintaining a generous salary and benefits package that helps them to flourish and grow.
