The Roland Park Country School History Department is committed to helping students succeed in an increasingly globalized, diverse, and digital world. We present a continuous system of skills to help our students broaden their horizons and develop a sense of global citizenship. Throughout their years in the Upper School, students study two years of World History and one year of US History. We also offer a rich variety of rigorous courses as upper level electives, ranging from global to local in their focus and examining the world through a variety of critical lenses. We aim to graduate informed, analytical, and critical scholars who not only identify problems but orient themselves toward solutions.
The History Department is seeking qualified candidates to teach World History and United States History. We are a collaborative group: teamwork permeates the department overall, and decisions are derived through discussion and consensus building. Almost all faculty members in the Upper School also serve as academic advisors in our robust advising and student wellness program.
