We’re Doing Things Differently Here

Breakthrough Schools is reinvigorating the educational system in Cleveland and we are looking for teachers committed to urban education to join our growing network. All our schools have strong, vibrant school cultures, where everyone is held to the highest expectations. However, one thing that sets Breakthrough Schools apart from other school networks is that we offer students and teachers four distinct educational approaches to choose from and thrive in: Citizens, Citizens Leadership, and Village Prep, and E Prep.

We Believe In Our Teachers

Our students are excelling in so many ways — far more than just on state test results — a testament to the talent and expertise of our educators. We believe in fostering and celebrating our teachers through:

Curricular innovation

Our teachers develop some of the most innovative and effective teaching strategies. In fact, many other districts look to observe our teachers in action.

Commitment To Growth

We help our teachers achieve this level of practice and pedagogy through intensive professional development before students begin the school year, purposeful on-going professional development, and 1-on-1 coaching and modeling.

Recognition of successes

We compensate our staff in a way that recognizes outstanding achievement of student results, professional growth as educators, and is competitive with other districts and charters.

Room To Grow

Teachers in our network have so many career growth opportunities. Whether you’re looking to excel as a master teacher, split your time between the classroom and teacher coaching, develop your way into school leadership, or extend your skills to our entire network, we support our teachers as they build their career and forge their own path.


In Case You're An Audio/Visual Learner

We’re on our way to serving 5,000 students citywide. Over the next 5 years, we will hire more than 100 founding teachers as we open new schools throughout Cleveland. Our teachers are the foundation of our network, our inspirers, and our future leaders.

Are You Ready For This?

We’re growing, we’re hiring, and we need the best teachers for our students. Is that you? If so, let’s get started. We have a poster hanging on our wall, and we believe it: “This is your world. Shape it or someone else will.” Let’s do this, together.
