Join Us! Openings for the 2015-2016 school year:

STRIVE Prep is a growing network of nine schools (one elementary, six middle, and two high schools) serving 3,000 students in three regions across the Denver metro area. We believe in starting new schools one grade at a time, and we’re looking for excellent teachers and administrators to support our three growing campuses.

Next year, our two high schools, STRIVE Prep-Excel and STRIVE Prep-SMART Academy, will grow to include a founding cohort of 11th and 12th grade teachers, respectively. In addition, our flagship elementary school, STRIVE Prep-Ruby Hill, will grow to include a founding cohort of 2nd grade teachers and support staff.

STRIVE Prep hires on a rolling basis until each position is filled; therefore, we encourage candidates to apply as soon as possible to ensure consideration. Please click here to view all available positions and apply!
