I am moving to NW Washington DC this summer, summer of 2011, and am looking for a good high school where I can teach. I have taught high school science (physical science and biology) in a upper-middle class suburban school in rural south-central Pennsylvania and am looking for a school district that offers great opportunities and support for both students and faculty. I am the science department chair, the ski club advisor, and have a masters degree in science education. I'm looking for a highly-motivated academic school district. Any suggestions on such a district in the NW DC area?
You can also live in NW DC and commute to Montgomery County. Pyle MS in Bethesda has very motivated kids and parents, schools in the Potomac, MD area ( Hoover MS, Churchill HS, Wooton HS) are great, so is the IB program of Richard Montgomery High School which is known for extremely hard working students and a very challenging curriculum. Good luck!68804
Your question annoyed me just a bit, but I will be nice. You have a master's in science which means you should be familiar with research. How would you feel if one of your students went to a website and asked for an answer instead of doing the work and the research themselves? Secondly, you do not sound as though you are looking to be an asset to a school, which means you would probably be better suited to a private school. That being said the best public high schools in DC are School without Walls and Banneker which you would have known if you had just went to the DC public school website (www.dcps.dc.gov).The private schools here are excellent and some of the best ones are Sidwell Friends, Georgetown Prep, and St. Johns Academy. All else aside you should probably go the private school route because all the public schools here have a diverse population of students and it is helpful to know how to work with students from different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.67532
