Academic Tutor: Upper Division (New Role)

Company: Bridge Boston Charter School
Location: Boston
Posted on: May 16, 2022

Job Description:


Bridge Boston Charter School students will thrive in a challenging, joyful, inclusive K1-8 public school community that values close partnerships with families, and a focus on the whole child. Our students will develop the skills necessary to excel academically in rigorous high schools, reach their individual potentials, and view themselves as creators of their own futures. Through full-service programming, Bridge Boston Charter School will work to remove the health and social obstacles that hinder student learning.


Bridge Boston Charter School is a tuition-free, K1-8 public school serving 335 students in Roxbury, Massachusetts, and the surrounding community - many of whom have experienced social, emotional, and developmental barriers to learning.

Three core beliefs guide our work:
Students do best in a rigorous academic environment that teaches basic skills and inspires a love of learning.
Students thrive when a school plays an active role in eliminating barriers, working closely with families and partner organizations to meet each student's health and social service needs.
Students will succeed when they live and learn in a nurturing community where they are respected as individuals, where they are encouraged to explore the world around them, and where their efforts are fully supported.
