About Long-View Micro School
Innovation in education lies on the periphery of most schools and educationally-oriented organizations. Not at Long-View. Innovation and creation are the core of what we do. Each day is different because each day we are thinking about how to design learning experiences that ensure that young learners are growing their capacities to create, communicate, collaborate, and think critically.
Working at Long-View may involve working within our micro school. It may involve leading professional development for educators across the globe. Or it may involve content creation, strategy, and business development. We are a busy, growing organization and opportunity abounds.
A few thoughts on working in our school: We know that classroom educators, in particular, are often isolated and have very little time to collaborate, learn with colleagues, and innovate. At our micro school, we are building exactly the opposite experience. We strive to make collaboration integral to our work environment. Long-View educators are creators, innovators, and idea-generators, and are part of the team in taking Long-View to the next level.
