Our faculty and staff are a lot like our students: passionate, curious, inquisitive, and just as committed to their own learning and growth as they are to the students. At Wildwood, we are all learners.

Working at Wildwood

Wildwood School's nationally-recognized educational program follows a progressive approach, emphasizing project-based learning and a multidisciplinary methodology that puts students at the center of their education. Wildwood uses narrative assessments as a central part of its approach to mastery learning. Assessments provide a clear and deep understanding of a student’s progress in each discipline. Students' assessments are converted to letter grades for the purpose of their transcript and the college admissions process. Wildwood is also a founding member of the Mastery Transcript Consortium, working with more than 230 other public and independent schools to improve the quality of information provided during the college admission process, highlighting mastery of both content and skills that prepare students for college, career, and life.

Wildwood is committed to building a diverse and inclusive culture and welcomes teachers and staff members who bring skills, qualities, and/or experiences that demonstrate an understanding of and ability to support our work surrounding multicultural education, global citizenship, and sustaining a diverse and inclusive school community. You’ll find that a strong sense of community is palpable at Wildwood amongst its students, alumni, faculty, and parents. There is continual growth and support K-12 among teachers, grades, and divisions. Faculty and staff share the common goal of educating children and adolescents to become compassionate, wise adults with a sense of self and respect for others.

Students and families who choose Wildwood School have a range of school options in Los Angeles, both public and independent. They choose Wildwood for myriad reasons, but primary among them are the faculty. Both the adult and student culture at Wildwood is one that embraces intellectual risk-taking, innovation, collaboration, respect, and kindness.

Teaching is hard work. It’s also incredibly rewarding, especially in an environment where students are valued and are challenged to reflect on their work in ways that inevitably lead to growth. Wildwood teachers are lifelong learners themselves. They are encouraged to be thoughtful and innovative and are able to infuse their individual skills and passions, whether that be making robotics, playing guitar, international politics, or mastering chemistry compounds, into Wildwood’s curricular framework. You’ll find examples of this here.
