The Raleigh School

When children, teachers and parents come together, amazing things happen. That is The Raleigh School, a uniquely child-centered independent school serving the vibrant community of Raleigh, NC. For over 65 years the school has functioned as a village of play-based, hands-on, integrated learning for students 18 months of age through fifth grade, now serving over 400 children. The Raleigh School is truly mission-driven. It has never wavered from its philosophy and approach, and so its reputation in the community is well established and highly respected. The school’s graduates have a high rate of success in middle school and beyond. Faculty and staff are highly engaged and enjoy flexibility, autonomy, and creativity. TRS parents are highly supportive and involved in their children’s education, and they volunteer countless hours of service to the school.

The campus is comprised of 18 wooded acres, 18 classrooms, the Arts and Athletic Center, Media Center and extensive natural play areas, including a new elementary playscape. Outdoor learning, including exploration through field trips, is integral to the curriculum. Raleigh is located in the southeastern corner of the Research Triangle, a prospering area with three leading research universities, many high-tech companies and an impressive array of museums and cultural activities.

The Raleigh School seeks candidates who will reflect and enhance the diversity of our school; a demonstrated ability working in a diverse and inclusive community is essential.
