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 and staff. 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, they serve on principal cabinets. Faculty and staff also formed a Service, Please group to organize their peers for volunteer opportunities within the city. As need arises, faculty become involved in studying a particular topic such as employee benefits, teacher recruitment or a specific 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 approach, counseling conferences, technology seminars and traveled to areas of the world to help them gain a better understanding and appreciation for their subject matter. 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.
