Knowledge Academies is a new, public charter school for
families, located in Nashville, TN. The school design received
the highest rating of the 2011 charter school review
committee of the Metropolitan Nashville Board of Education.
The model is based on four pillars: 1) a less than 20 to 1
student teacher ratio, 2) partnerships with multiple
universities, 3) ongoing programs for families, and 4) the
application of technology to work smarter.
Applicants should possess the following credentials: 1)
certification in their respective content discipline; 2)
experience meeting the needs of both students and families
whose first language is not English. The ability to speak
Spanish or Arabic is preferred, but not required; 3) strong
capacity to work in a team-based and collaborative
environment, focused on excellence; 4) a deep level of
knowledge and experience working with students and
families from low-income communities.
