Who We Are

Longview School
is like no other.

While Longview School certainly has a rigorous pre-K through 12th grade academic program, what makes Longview unique is our supportive community where each student knows and is known by every teacher. In our small classes (3-10 students), teachers make the curriculum relevant by connecting their subjects to the students' lives. Combined with a hands-on educational approach, this inspires students to love learning. Beyond academics, Longview empowers students to become independent and responsible as they participate in our democratically-governed school with a student-led judicial system. Longview's focus on educating the whole child, academically and personally, gives our graduates an undeniable advantage as they transition to college.

The above is what we say about the school, but Longview is of course much more. It is a place created by teachers who were successful in traditional academic settings, but who believe that education is not filling students' heads with information, but is about learning to become successful adults. For us, success is measured first and foremost by being able to lead happy lives. Not the sort of happiness that comes with seeming perfection on the outside while there is endless turmoil on the inside. No, the kind of happiness that comes from people knowing themselves well enough to be able to guide their lives towards happiness. The kind of happiness that comes when people have learned the skills to have some control over themselves and their world, having tested their mettle in a safe, supportive environment so that they leave school ready to face what comes next. The kind of happiness possessed by people who have learned independence and responsibility, at the same time that they have learned how to form meaningful and supportive relationships with peers and teachers. If this is the sort of school you want not only to be a part of, but to have an active role in helping to create, then maybe we have a place for you.

Longview combines aspects of the Sudbury School model with more traditional academic education. So how does that work?

We have 2 educational tracks: the Sudbury track and the Academic track. Each family--parents and kids together--chooses which track is right for the child. On the Academic track, students take classes in English, math, science and social studies, in addition to electives. On the Sudbury track, students are able to choose how to fill their time at school. They can take as many or as few classes as they choose, or help to create classes in areas of their special interests. Although the classes cover fairly traditional content, there is a constant focus on hands-on learning and making the material relevant to students' lives.

Regardless of their track, all students participate in the other aspects of a Sudbury education, which include participation in:

-a truly democratic school (run by School Meeting in which every student and each staff member get one vote);
-a student-run judicial system to resolve conflicts among all community members;
-a system of clerkship jobs in which students share in the real-world work of running and maintaining a school;
-an internship system placing kids in real job settings;
-a student-run chore system in which students take responsibility for keeping the school neat each day.

To learn more about our school, check out our website at www.longviewschool.org.


What We Need

We are looking for an intern who is truly excited by our innovative model and who is nearly bursting with passion for democratic education. The right person should have knowledge and skills in at least one of the following areas: Computer Science, ESL, Writing, Math.

Candidates might include

-a young person who is not sure what to do in life, but knows that s/he has a lot to give;
-a person with real-life skills who wants to apply her/hisknowledge through teaching;
-someone who is new to teaching and can't imagine working in a traditional school;
-a parent who is unwilling to send her/his child(ren) to public school and wants to be a part of their education;
-someone retired from teaching who can't stay away from education but won't stand for any other place than a school in which the kids are empowered;
-someone who is uniquely qualified for reasons we haven't yet considered.

Team players are a must, as we all wear many hats.

What We're Offering

Compensation will include some of the below depending on the particular circumstances of each candidate:

1) A monthly stipend ($500 to $1,000);

2) Housing near the school;

3) A barter arrangement for being able to enroll a child/children in the school;

4) The possibility of greater employment in future school years.


How to apply

Look over our website (www.longviewschool.org). Watch the videos in our Guided Introduction. Then write a letter of interest. Send in your letter and resume by email to info@longviewschool.org or by mail to Longview School, 83 Main Street, Brewster, NY 10509.

About City Parks Foundation

City Parks Foundation (CPF)
is the only independent, non-profit organization to offer programs in parks throughout the five boroughs of New York City. CPF works in over 700 parks citywide, presenting a broad range of free arts, sports and education programs and helping citizens to support their parks on a local level. Our programs and community-building initiatives reach more than 600,000 New Yorkers each year, contributing to the revitalization of neighborhoods throughout New York City.

This is an exciting time of growth for CPF Education. For over 20 years, CPF Education has promoted experiential learning in environmental science and media arts, connecting kids to parklands as learning laboratories. In 2013, CPF Education developed a comprehensive strategic plan. Our vision is to foster year-round, long-term engagement of youth from targeted, high-needs communities in our five program areas: Seeds to Trees, Learning Gardens, Green Girls, Coastal Classroom and Youth Made Media.

A key strategy to achieve this vision is a significant expansion of out-of-school time programs, all of which will have media arts components. Ultimately, all our science and media arts programs will have afterschool initiatives and Summer Institutes for middle schoolers that lead to credit-bearing apprenticeships and paid internships for high schoolers. Together, these initiatives will create a pipeline for youth to study urban ecology and media arts throughout adolescence, thereby opening new STEAM interests, employment opportunities, college possibilities and career options.

CPF seeks candidates with strong backgrounds in photography, videography, stop-motion animation and related digital art forms to provide skills-based instruction. CPF media artists must be experienced in promoting positive youth development, artistic skills and academic knowledge.

The month will be intense, think campaign hours (including nights and weekends). You will learn basic community organizing techniques – and then apply what you've learned in the field. Successful candidates will be goal oriented, outgoing, and committed to the idea that through organizing we can effect social change.

Candidates who successfully complete the training academy will be considered for full time employment. Preference will be given to applicants interested and available for full time employment post-academy.

To apply: please fill out our online application. Only candidates who are available for the full five weeks (September 30-November 1) and interested in full time employment-will be considered for the program. The application deadline is November 24 but applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Apply today!

Start date: Monday, January 6, 2015

Compensation: stipend of $2,500 for the 5-weeks, weekly metro card, and one time cell phone reimbursement

About StudentsFirstNY

StudentsFirstNY is building a grassroots movement of parents, teachers, students, administrators and concerned citizens mobilizing for one purpose: to put the laws, policies and leaders in place to provide every child in New York with a quality education.

We believe that we've been doing things the old way for too long. Pitting the interests of the grown-ups in the system against one another, for example, rather than focusing on real solutions. No one won. And students lost. Too many of our school schools, laws, policies, and practices are putting adult interests ahead of students. The results are seen in schools across the State that fail to provide our children with the tools they need to succeed. It's time for a new approach that puts students' interests at the center of education policy.

We will channel the energy of our members to produce meaningful results in Albany and in localities across the State. We will work with legislators and local leaders to create laws and policies that put the needs of students above any other interest in the system. We will push for reforms that will elevate the teaching profession and improve teacher and principal quality, empower parents and improve the governance and financial strength of school districts.

StudentsFirstNY is part of a national organization, StudentsFirst, that was founded in 2010 by former Washington D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee. Across the country, its members have already helped pass more than 50 new policies in half a dozen states. We have helped improve education systems affecting millions of students. We're transforming public education to ensure great teachers and great schools for all of our kids.
