Work at The Elisabeth Morrow School

Fifth-, sixth-, and eighth-grade science teacher Dr. Stephanie Nebel and students pose in the woods while wearing hard hats.

Working in education isn’t just about building future leaders.

When you join a community of supported learning, you grow, too.

The inclusivity at EMS is unlike anything I have experienced both as an employee and a parent.  We don’t provide a one-size-fits-all model for the students or staff, and that’s why everyone thrives here.

Working at EMS is a refuge from the city 

The Elisabeth Morrow School campus sits on 14-acres in Bergen County and offers our employees a natural setting and plenty of room to spread out.

We aren’t just a school, we are a community. Ensuring each staff member feels supported in their professional development and growth is the best benefit we offer — but we offer traditional benefits, too!
