    Middle School Human Development

    Campbell Hall, founded in 1944 and situated on 15 naturally landscaped acres in North Hollywood, California, is an independent, all gender, college preparatory, Episcopal day school for students in kindergarten through grade twelve.  The middle school division includes grades 7-8 and is composed of approximately 230 students and 35 full- and part-time faculty and coaches.

    The school is committed to fostering a community dedicated to honoring the diversity of the human experience. Campbell Hall welcomes candidates who have a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in their teaching and learning. Campbell Hall believes in and operates on the premise that it is the right of all persons to seek work and to advance on the basis of their individual merits, ability, and potential. Campbell Hall has been, is, and will continue to be, strongly committed to the principle that equal employment opportunity must be afforded to all persons regardless of race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, gender, pregnancy, sexual orientation, family care status, veteran status, marital status, age, medical condition, and disability.

    Campbell Hall is guided by the Episcopal tradition of open inquiry and spiritual formation and seeks faculty who are devoted to the pursuit of academic excellence and to the nurturing of decent, loving, and responsible human beings.


    Campbell Hall Faculty Description

    Campbell Hall (K-12, all-gender, college preparatory, Episcopal) is seeking faculty who are dedicated to the developmentally appropriate education of the whole child; who are interested in learning as well as teaching; who connect their responsibilities with the philosophy and purpose of the school; who teach to empower as well as to inform; who are comfortable with questions as well as with answers; who can work with direction, focus, humor and dignity within the complexities of a diverse school environment; and who will be dedicated to promoting and maintaining an inclusive school community.

    In addition to their academic responsibilities, Campbell Hall faculty are involved in many aspects of school life.  Coaching interscholastic athletics, chaperoning experiential education trips, participating in community service activities, helping the students to produce school publications, overseeing student council, and leading a special interest club are just a few ways faculty are more deeply involved in the Campbell Hall community. Each faculty member serves as a student advisor.  An advisor is dedicated to the emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth of each student.  

    Campbell Hall faculty pride themselves on becoming involved in many aspects of the school community. They are dedicated in their implementation of a vigorous college preparatory academic program and are equally devoted to the emotional and spiritual development of each student. The result is a community where students and adults are confident to learn and grow.
