Head of School Search
Thank-you for your interest in the Head of School position at Lincoln Community School. LCS is seeking a Head of School who is passionate about international education. LCS educators love and respect children, are committed to meeting the needs of all students, thrive in a collaborative, collegial environment as part of a team of professionals, and inspire their students to be curious, critical learners. Our next Head of School will be someone who can foster a strong sense of community, support our educators, be an excellent communicator and have a strong business acumen.
There are many positives to working at LCS. If you were to survey our teaching faculty, we’d guess that first among those positives would be our delightful student body – a more welcoming, more caring group of students would be hard to find. However, working in Ghana, or at LCS – with our well-defined expectations for teaching and learning – is not right for everyone. Therefore, before applying we encourage you to engage with our website thoroughly to get a sense of who we are, what we are trying to achieve, what we expect of ourselves and our colleagues, and how you might fit into our learning community.
This is an exciting time to join our team. We have recently engaged in a design thinking process aimed at coalescing our shared vision and values and, as a result, believe that we’re on track to very soon be the most exciting learning environment in West Africa. We are looking for a Head of School who will lead the school community in implementing the plans that we have made.
We are dedicated to offering a global curriculum for a global era. LCS is proud of the fact that we were the first IB World School in West Africa to offer IB programs at all levels. Indeed, our Learning Principles – our foundational beliefs about what optimizes learning – are rooted in the IB’s Approaches to Teaching. We are striving to where joyful yet deep learning is co-designed, where teachers and students know what they want to achieve, and they know what it takes to achieve it. Many aspects of this dream are already in place, with others just waiting for the right colleagues to come along and help it to further develop.
We hope that as you learn more about our school you will reinforce your belief that this is a community you can contribute to, and a team that you wish to join. Should you feel that a move to Lincoln Community School is right for you, we look forward to receiving your application.
