Working At Conservatory Lab

Do you wake up with the urge to go out and change the world? Are you a lover of music with a desire to use your passion to inspire generations to come? Do you dream of equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the tools to live with ferocious authenticity, dedication, and creativity that cannot be stopped?

In Dorchester, one of Boston’s most vibrant and ever-changing communities, we invite you to consider a career at Conservatory Lab Charter School. We proudly serve 450 students in Pre-K – Grade 8 at two Dorchester campuses.

We take pride in enriching our community through performance, service, and collaboration. As a laboratory school, we develop and disseminate innovative educational approaches that will positively impact children in other schools and programs.

Conservatory Lab Charter School believes in the power of music and learning to transform the lives of students and their families. At the core of our pioneering curriculum is the hybrid of two proven and exemplary programs: El Sistema and EL Education (formerly Expeditionary Learning). Both programs emphasize the experience of breaking through barriers in the pursuit of excellence. Together, they create a culture and habit of perseverance and motivate and nurture our students to become dedicated scholars and compassionate leaders.

Now in its 8th year, our El Sistema program has expanded to include seven full orchestras, three wind ensembles, a percussion ensemble, music literacy, choral music and instrumental technique classes with Resident Artists. In the past year alone, students have performed for audiences on 38 occasions at locales ranging from the Massachusetts State House to neighborhood health centers, as well as at the Hatch Shell, side-by-side with professional musicians from both the Boston Philharmonic and Landmarks Orchestras.

We understand the tough work that goes into inventing and growing your role as an educator, and recognize that finding that perfect job is no easy feat.

At Conservatory Lab Charter School we are confident that we do an exceptional job at supporting your choice to lead and succeed. You’ll be challenged to push the limits of what you currently know. You might lead a poetry slam at a library, or take students out in the field to do water testing. As a teacher at Conservatory Lab, you will have the opportunity to collaborate in a professional learning community to create a curriculum. By owning what you teach, you will also inspire students to take ownership of their learning!

Become a part of our growing community, have a direct impact on students, and take advantage of a unique opportunity to reshape your way of thinking, working, and living.
