ABOUT MIROWITZ:
About When prospective parents and community members walk into Mirowitz, they say something along these lines: "Something's different about this school. You can feel it the moment you walk in the door." It's the feeling you get when you are surrounded by people who look for the best in others and who know that kindness begets more kindness. Every morning at Mirowitz we consider how to learn better, how to teach better, how to lead better, and how to be better friends to each other. That unique loving spirit is the essence of Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School.

Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School is a pluralistic Jewish independent school for children kindergarten through eighth grade. The school offers a robust general and Jewish studies curriculum, and we purposefully infuse our learning environment with simcha — intentional Jewish joy.

At Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School, we believe that school should be a place of academic excellence. School also should be a place where children grow to be socially responsible, to develop a moral compass that will guide their leadership, and where Jewish learning inspires children to connect to their heritage and to engage in meaningful ways with the world.

We are committed to providing our students with an extraordinary childhood. Each minute we have with our students is valuable. We strive to fill them with learning that is meaningful and helps them reach their highest potential. We are the only Jewish school in St. Louis that is not affiliated with the Orthodox movement. We welcome Jewish families from all denominations, those who do not affiliate with a
denomination, and even non-Jewish families interested in a Jewish learning environment for their children. We have created a school community that encourages members who express their values and Judaism in diverse ways to engage each other with curious, passion and
respect. We have seen that the purposeful practice of pluralism exposes children to authentic, alternative views and results in better learning across all subject areas.

HEAD OF SCHOOL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
This position requires an educator with significant experience who has spent some time in a top administrative role. Candidates should be innovative and knowledgeable in
