Academia del Pueblo Elementary School (ADP) is currently seeking experienced and compassionate elementary school teachers for the 23/24 school year. ADP is looking for teachers with strong content knowledge, who can plan lessons with clear learning objectives that engage and inspire student learning.


About ADP:


Academia del Pueblo (ADP) is a non-profit K-8 public charter school which has operated since 1997, under the auspices of Friendly House, one of Arizona’s pioneer social service organizations since 1920. Friendly House provides a set of fully integrated programs which include: early childhood and elementary education; adult education and workforce development; family services; and neighborhood based services targeting Central/South Phoenix. ADP is unique in that we are in a position to offer wrap-around services for the students and families in our community.


ADP’s mission is to deliver broad-based education, youth development and academic enrichment programs in-school and out-of-school that address specific academic and youth development needs in order to provide students with the foundational academic skills and developmental assets needed to achieve success in high school, college, work and life. The academic enrichment opportunities are intended to help students understand the real-life applications of what they learn in the classroom (in all subject areas) and encourage them to develop their talents and skills in areas where they have the most interest and passion. These opportunities may spark a passion in a student which they had not yet realized. The development of this passion might be what encourages a student to complete his/her education through high school and college and have the skills and developmental assets necessary to achieve success in work and life.
