We have a late opening for a full-time math / science teacher for the 2022-2023 school year, and beyond! Ideally, the teacher will begin no later than August 1, 2022, but we are open to discussing a later start date if required. We encourage all interested applicants to apply!

Do you love being on the river or trail, and sharing that passion? Are you eager to motivate young leaders while engaging them in place-based learning? Join our team at Alzar School, an accredited semester high school and nonprofit, with the mission to “build leaders who positively impact the world”. We are based in Cascade, Idaho and Coyhaique, Chile. Our teachers also serve as outdoor leaders in backpacking, and/or whitewater rafting, kayaking. We invite applicants from a variety of backgrounds to apply, and firmly believe that a diverse faculty enriches our staff community and connections with students. Some applicants may possess skills in certain areas and less experience in others, for example: academic, outdoor, residential, leadership, or cultural, amongst others. We look forward to the opportunity to review your application!
