Independent K-12 School
Oakwood School is a K-12 coeducational day school in North Hollywood, California that opened its doors in 1951. The school has remained faithful to its original mission ever since: to create a diverse educational environment where young people are partners with the adults who teach them and learn from them; where the best means of preparing students for the future is to immerse them in the present; where a healthy learning environment requires joy and humor as well as rigorous intensity; and where students’ intellectual and aesthetic depth – along with their capacity for empathy and moral courage – emerge out of authentic engagement with their teachers, one another, and the world around them.
The elementary school counselor reports to the principal and works within the Support Services department to provide social, emotional, and behavioral guidance to the school’s students. The school counselor demonstrates a deep understanding of developmental issues and uses that knowledge to create prevention and intervention programs to address common issues that children confront during their elementary school years. Excellent communication skills with parents and other members of the community are essential for the support of strong partnerships that reflect a commitment to the whole of school life. This is a part-time position at 50%. Hours to be determined in consultation with the counselor.
