Excellence is…
Shared Best Practices
The Excellent Schools Network (ESN) is a select group of BES schools that have demonstrated strong academic results, sound organizational practices, and the genuine ability to close the achievement gap in their communities. These schools build on—and learn from—one another’s successes to sustain high levels of student achievement.

High Expectations, High Achievement
ESN member schools must meet the following criteria to gain admission to and remain in the ESN: demonstrate proven, consistent results; commit to growth; share a common design that is independently executed; cultivate strong community ties; and support the ESN and its members.

A Strong Team
A strong and growing school starts with a strong – and often growing – team of top talent. Whether as an entrepreneurial school leader or a life-changing teacher, you can provide a promising future to students in an excellent school—and help to grow more excellent schools.

A Selective Recruitment Process
Candidates for job openings in an ESN school should be aligned with the BES approach. Everything we do comes out of our core belief that academic performance must drive every element of a school.

Through the online application process, you are able to view job openings at ESN schools nationwide and apply directly to these schools. Once your application is submitted to an ESN school through our online application below, the school will follow up directly and make the hiring decision.

Application Steps:

  1. Review jobs available. Search positions by keyword, city, or school name.
  2. Complete the application, including a resume upload (allow 30-45 minutes).
  3. School(s) will contact you if there is a good fit.
