Career Opportunities

A highly professional, diverse, and stable faculty and staff lies at the heart of MSR’s success.

Teachers engage, inspire, and challenge young learners in multi-age classes that foster warm, lasting relationships—a hallmark for the school’s experience for faculty, students and parents alike.

Strong hiring, fine facilities and materials, sound fiscal management, strong compensation and benefits, and a grounded educational philosophy driven by a clear educational and institutional mission are the bedrock of our strength.

MSR’s beautifully designed and well maintained Lead Mine Campus, situated on 10 acres in North Raleigh, comprises five buildings in a child-centered, village like setting surrounded by wetlands and protected forest. Our Middle and Upper Schools are housed on an expansive 40-acre wooded campus in Brier Creek. Both sites were carefully planned and constructed to provide the nature-centered environments integral to Montessori practice.
