At National Presbyterian School, faculty and staff love working in our Pre-K 3 through Sixth Grade school because of our exceptional community, known for its warmth, joyful approach to teaching, and collective commitment among employees and families to the school's simple yet powerful mission of focusing on the foundational decade of childhood to launch lives of purpose and compassion. 

Further informing this unique NPS community are: the school’s Core Values of Love, Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Safety, which are woven throughout the learning environment at NPS; the school’s Diversity Statement, written by the full faculty and staff asserting our commitment to being a community of true inclusion; and the Faculty and Staff Norms that foster a culture of professionalism, kindness, humor and grace. 

NPS faculty and staff appreciate our elementary-only model with the prioritization of children’s best interests and the continual pursuit - through collaboration and professional development - of excellence and expertise in curriculum and pedagogy for young children.

NPS offers competitive salaries and the following benefits:

  • Health, dental, and disability insurance
  • Leave including paid holidays, medical and personal
  • Matching 401K contributions
  • Discounted tuition for NPS, NPS Summer Camp, and NPCCC, the NPS on-campus childcare center
  • Free before and after school care for faculty and staff children enrolled at NPS
  • On-campus infant and toddler care at NPCCC that prioritizes NPS faculty and staff
  • Professional development


Interested candidates should send a resume, cover letter, areas of interest and contact information for three professional references to Laura Ferrara at lferrara@nps-dc.org.
