Careers at Equipo Academy
A Campus Built for Great Teachers
There is no magic curriculum and there are no silver bullets. Great schools are defined by great teachers. So we have worked hard to hire a team and family of incredible educators and we have built an incredible place for them to work. Our commitment to teachers is reflected in every decision we make.
A Best Place to Teach
As a team, we are committed to creating a campus that is a best place to teach. This means providing teachers with the autonomy to design and deliver their best instruction, along with the coaching they need to keep getting better. It means two preps a day and a collaborative environment to make the challenging job of teaching a more sustainable career. And it means a multitude of leadership opportunities for teachers to become campus leaders and career master teachers.
Salaries that Value Great Teaching
Equipo Academy board members have affirmed their commitment to great teachers by offering the highest starting salaries of any Clark County public school and a compensation plan that allows teachers to quickly advance without complicated step- or column- salary structures. Simply put, great teachers are rewarded with the compensation packages they deserve.
Equipo Academy provides comprehensive medical, vision, and dental benefits as well as life insurance and a comprehensive employee assistance program. As public employees, our teachers are eligible for the same PERS retirement benefits at the same rates that other teachers in Southern Nevada receive. And we have worked closely with our teachers to launch innovative new leave policies as we move into our second and third years of operation, including the first-ever team PTO policy and most generous parental leave policies of any public school in Nevada. Our teachers make our family at Equipo and so our policies respect their families, too.
