Hard Work=Success

Teachers are eligible for base salary bonuses from up to 5% based on student academic growth.  Student growth is measured across classrooms, departments, grade levels, and the entire school.  Top performing teachers can earn significantly more than other teachers in the St. Louis region.

Outfitted as Professionals

All teachers are provided cell phones, MacBook Pros, and iPads to plan lessons, collaborate with peers, and make themselves available to students and families.

More time to prep

Teachers have at least 100 minutes of prep time each day and over 6 hours of prep time each week.  Every minute of prep time is with your subject area colleagues and takes place in the school’s “War Room”.

Professional Development

Every 7-8 weeks, South City Prep teachers have one full week of professional development and 1/2 day Professional Development of Friday.  This week allows our teachers to spend extensive time looking at individual student academic data and to plan units for the next instructional cycle.  Over the course of the year, South City Prep teachers will have over 160 hours of paid professional development and work time in their classrooms every year.  Additionally, every staff member has a chance to attend the BES Weekend Warrior Series and Uncommon Schools professional development led by Doug Lemov.

Outstanding Colleagues

Our teachers know that they were rigorously selected as the top 1% of hundreds of applicants.
