Pembroke Hill seeks to be one of the finest independent schools in the nation. It is the goal of the school to provide a strong college preparatory program from which each student will develop a personal commitment to learning, a respect for independent thinking and an expanding curiosity about the world and its people.

The school is committed to maintaining a diverse and gifted faculty. At Pembroke Hill, teachers provide essential input in planning and implementing the programs we offer. Collaboration with colleagues is a necessary element in helping teachers fulfill their responsibilities. The pursuit of excellence is a cooperative process grounded in respect for others in an inclusive environment. Therefore, the school seeks educators who share these values.

There are many opportunities for faculty and staff to participate in decision making at Pembroke Hill. For example, standing committees include: diversity, curriculum, student life, principal’s cabinets and faculty/staff relations. Examples of ad hoc committees include ones that study a specific topic, such as employee benefits, teacher recruitment or a particular discipline.

Professional development of our teachers is an important aspect of continuing to provide the finest education to our students. Funds are available to teachers for advanced college and university classes, workshops and conferences. Teachers have attended programs in the Reggio Emillia early education program, counseling conferences, People of Color Conference and an archeological dig in the Southwest. The school also brings education experts to campus for faculty in-service days.

The Alumni Association sponsors a grant program that enables faculty to undertake summer projects that are personally and professionally rewarding. Teachers are responsible for researching these opportunities and submitting grant applications.

Pembroke Hill is an equal opportunity employer.
