Who are we? Ethical Culture Fieldston School is a progressive PreK-12 independent school that has been serving students from throughout New York City and the surrounding suburbs since 1878. ECFS offers a rich curriculum in the arts, sciences, and humanities. A co-ed, nonsectarian school, it serves a diverse community of about 1,700 students on two campuses - one in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, and the other in Manhattan. What is essential about working at our school? The Ethical Culture Fieldston School has a long history of equity and inclusion is deeply rooted in our mission and the educational philosophy of our founder, Felix Adler. We embrace a diversity of ancestry, family, identity, culture, and belief and seek a student body and faculty that reflect the pluralism and socio-economic diversity of metropolitan New York. We affirm both our differences and commonalities, and strive to balance individuality and community. In keeping with our progressive tradition, we are dedicated to increasing our students' cultural literacy to help them understand multiple perspectives, and see the world beyond the self. We expect members of our community to engage in open dialogue about living and learning in a diverse environment inside and outside the classroom. We see this work, with its creative tensions, as a catalyst for individual and collective growth. On a daily basis, we are committed to making this vision of a democratic, pluralistic and progressive school a reality. Currently, we have a full-time one year position as a School-Wide Nurse for our all divisions on both campuses. We are looking for passionate educators to join our community who are committed to progressive education, who consider ethics to be at the core of their work with students and colleagues, and who will contribute to the academic success of all of our students. The ideal candidate is knowledgeable of best practices and will comply with established procedures and protocols in caring for students with chronic and acute illness, as well as injuries and illnesses that arise during the school day. In addition, the nurse will communicate as needed with families, administrative staff, school psychologists, athletic trainer and fellow nurses in the lower schools.
