St. Paul American Scholars (SPAS) is designed to help teach young people to become responsible citizens and prepare students for college. That means that they must learn the key attributes of ethical behavior including courage, compassion, integrity, justice, truth, reason, fairness, respect, and honesty in addition to the core academic subjects.
A positive school climate is characterized by quality teaching by instructors and effective learning by students. This requires a safe environment for all who work in and attend SPAS along with an emphasis on citizenship and adherence to rules applied equitably and fairly to all in the St. Paul community. We believe that parents are essential partners in the educational process and must be properly involved and accountable for the achievement and behavior of their children.
Saint Paul American Scholars is seeking an organized and structured individual to fill an upcoming opening as a G1ESL teacher in January 2023. Teachers who fulfill the contract successfully will have the possibility to renew for the following academic year, 2023-2024.

SPAS began in the summer of 2015 as a small English immersion school offering an American-style education. Over the past few years, we have continued to grow, but our commitment to offering an exceptional education that strives for global mindedness, critical thinking, and mutual responsibility remains steadfast.
We currently have 12 full and part-time qualified and dedicated educators. They teach grades 1 to 9 and are the backbone of our school.
To help meet our goal of global-mindedness, SPAS also offers Chinese classes. Both of our Chinese teachers are native-speaking, highly qualified teachers from China.
In addition to our exceptional educators, we have a wonderful Parent-Teacher Organization that meets regularly to address the needs of both the parents and the school.
At SPAS we recognize that education is a three-legged stool; the teachers, the parents, and the students. The key to our growth and success is the strong level of parental support we receive.
SPAS inspires our students to possess global mindedness, be critical thinkers, and mutually respect others.
To keep up in the ever-increasingly interconnected and competitive global environment, SPAS strives to nurture global leaders. In addition, we strive to cultivate a generation of creative, independent thinkers who will become future leaders in the 21st century.
