Join The Miami Sudbury School Family
The Miami Sudbury School is a K-12 democratic school that operates like a small city with students and staff as equal citizens called "Voting Members." Voting Members shape policy together in weekly democratic meetings and maintain those policies through daily Judicial Council (JC) hearings. Students are able to pursue their own interests within the limits of community policies. Learning occurs contextually and meaningfully through student interests and community procedures.
Being Staff, intern, or volunteer at a Sudbury school is an incredibly rewarding and unique experience, working with young people ages 5-18 as a mentor and fellow democratic community member.

Duties & Responsibilities
Staff, Interns, and Volunteers at a Sudbury School are significantly different from traditional "teachers."
Sudbury Schools have helped thousands of students worldwide over the past 50 years to become highly effective adults who, rather than becoming "burnt out" from school, become life-long learners who successfully pursue higher education and enterprise. While there are two other Sudbury Schools in Florida, we are the first and only in Miami. Explore our website and social media for more information on the model and a window into what a typical day looks like. Our students expect and deserve the best - so that's who we are looking for. Being part of this community is an incredibly rewarding and unique experience.

- An absolutely one-of-a-kind educational experience. Besides the Sudbury school in Ft. Lauderdale, there are no other models exactly like ours available in our area. All of our past staff, interns, and volunteers have shared how life-changing it has been for them to be part of this kind of paradigm and community.
- Being part of a unique oasis and a place of growth for young people, from the highly-academic student sick of "performing" to the struggling student who wants to be appreciated for who they are, not what their grades are. It is in many ways a counter-cultural and revolutionary stance that values children as persons deserving of respect.
