Educational Director/Head of School – NY & NJ (New York, NY)

HudsonWay Immersion School (HWIS) has the reputation as the “best Mandarin and Spanish immersion program in NYC and NJ” due to its unique full immersion model, early start in preschool, teacher training and immersion leadership.   Reflecting that reputation, the school’s mission is to develop students as flexible thinkers, culturally aware and linguistically capable in at least two languages.

HWIS, serving children ages 2 to Grade 5, is the oldest independent Mandarin and Spanish immersion program in the NY/NJ area with two campuses – one on the upper west side of Manhattan, and one in NJ.  The school is poised to more than double enrollment growth with recently-obtained funding to expand and relocate the NY school in September 2019, and with the recent NJ move to a newly renovated Catholic school in NJ this past September 2018.  The school has also announced plans to grow in grades through grade 8 by 2021. 

The new educational director/head of school will report to and partner with a board consisting of three owner investors.  Two of the owner investors are the original founders having started this school for their own children 13 years ago.  The third investor joined HWIS in late 2018 to support the NY expansion.  Initially the role would focus on the education and operations of the school, expansion to middle school grades 6-8, development of after school clubs and building the parent community.  The roles of finance, legal, HR, marketing and admissions would be outside the scope of the role.  It is believed that in 2-4 years the role would expand to include these functional areas and evolve from Educational Director to Head of School.
