About the organization
Who We Are
Serving more than 3,300 scholars in six schools across two cities; Jackson, Mississippi and Nashville, Tennessee, RePublic Schools is the only school network solely dedicated to reimagining public education in the South.
Part of reimagining education in the South means that we confront the historic inequities that work against our scholars and actively work to dismantle those inequities. We are doing this by intentionally creating environments that embrace, honor, and celebrate our scholars’ identities and experiences, as well as the identities and experiences of every member of our community.
We are looking for dynamic, determined High School English Teachers to lock arms with our school team at RePublic High School in Nashville, TN for the 2022-2023 school year. Candidates must share our unwavering belief that all children can achieve at high levels and change the world. Sound like you?
