A school whose graduates enter the world motivated to use their learning to make a positive impact by loving God through loving others. If this little exercise in imagination gets you excited, read on!
Hamilton District Christian High has been a thriving learning community in the Hamilton area for 60 years. We are an independent, faith-based school that believes educating teenagers involves more than passing on information. An HDCH education is like no other; exceptional teachers investing in students makes all the difference to student engagement. We want to see our students grow in competence, compassion and character, develop creativity and reflection, and critique and create culture in all of their classes and extracurricular pursuits.
We are looking to hire exceptional teachers in a variety of subject areas for September 2019, with special consideration for those committed to using Project Based Learning in the following subjects: English, French, Computer Science, Drama, Math, and Business courses.
We invest heavily in building a restorative school culture. Come walk through our halls and experience it for yourself. Our school climate is rooted in building positive relationships with students. Our staff hold high expectations and provide high support for all students as they journey the high school years together. Just ask our students – our teachers are not only highly knowledgeable in their fields of study, but also work hard to support each student and meet individual learning needs.
We approach classroom teaching through Project Based Learning. Students are given meaningful tasks, engage in ongoing inquiry involving experts, apply their learning to real-world situations, and use their learning and projects to improve and bless the greater Hamilton area and beyond. Because our learning is so closely connected to our community, we do a lot of field trips and frequently host visiting experts in many different subject areas. On top of these academic field trips, HDCH also has a variety of sports teams and student clubs that encourage our students and teachers to be out of the building and in the community.
Who We Are Looking For
You have an active Christian faith. You love teenagers. You have a passion for excellent education. You are creative, flexible, and a team player. You are familiar with and have evidence of teaching through Project Based Learning, or you are excited to learn about it. You value positive relationships over power-based compliance.
