Employment Opportunities at DVFS

As a Quaker school for students who learn differently, there are a number of fundamental Guiding Principles that underpin our culture and community, and which are important for anyone considering employment with us to know:

  • Our Quaker heritage and beliefs compel us to see every individual as a person of infinite inherent worth. This is the core principle for our school and drives everything else that we do.
  • We are a diverse community of people who care deeply about one another and about issues of equity and inclusion. We welcome and honor differences in many forms: race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, nationality, socioeconomic status, physical and learning differences.
  • We prioritize relationships. Our Quaker principles and practice provide a framework that inspires us to be our best selves – supporting one another during challenging times, and celebrating each other’s successes.
