Employment Opportunities


George School is more than a school, it’s a community.

George School was founded in 1893 by Quakers, a religious group that became well known for taking uncommon stands. Over the years, they have fought for the abolition of slavery, prison reform, the rights of the mentally ill, and the rights of individuals to conscientiously object against warfare. We don’t try to turn students or employees into Quakers, but the school’s emphasis on the individual has a spiritual basis that we hope infuses our decisions, our activities, and our relationships.
