Founded in 1930, Mooreland Hill School is an intentionally small, yet diverse and vibrant learning community that serves elementary and middle school students from central Connecticut. We provide a balanced education, nurturing each student’s intellectual ability and curiosity, and their personal and social growth and civic conscience.
We offer a traditional, structured liberal arts curriculum with emphasis on fundamental studying and learning processes, complemented by strong inter-school athletics, arts and community service programs. We believe that educational opportunities extend well beyond the classroom to athletic competitions, artistic pursuits, and school leadership experiences and that it is our responsibility to utilize all these venues to encourage our students to discover their own interests, talents and passions and to become increasingly responsible for and engaged in their own learning. In all that we do – in the classrooms, on the playing fields and the concert stage, in the community – we strive to nurture the excellence in each child.
To accomplish these goals, we seek faculty members who are knowledgeable in middle school learning style and developmental needs, dedicated to fostering each student’s ability to perform to the best of his or her ability in all areas and willing to work with colleagues and families to create a positive environment for learning and growth.
Mooreland Hill faculty members are selected as much for their genuine interest in young people and willingness to get involved in every phase of school life as for their scholarship and teaching ability. In addition to teaching, most faculty members advise, coach, and / or supervise a student activity. While state certification is desirable, it is not required. Candidates must have a four-year degree.
Mooreland Hill School is a coeducational independent school. The school does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, religion, national or ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, or any protected class in the administration of its admissions, access to financial aid, educational programs, hiring practices, or school activities.
