  • Full-Time

McLean School (, a K-12 co-educational independent school in Potomac, Maryland, seeks applicants for an Assistant Coordinator of Learning Services for Upper School (grades 9-12) to begin July 1.

McLean School has for 70 years been helping bright students realize their full potential by providing a comprehensive college preparatory program that emphasizes small classes and differentiated instruction. We embrace both traditional learners and ones with dyslexia, ADHD, and executive functioning challenges. Through our Abilities Model, we recognize and teach to individual strengths, responding to areas of challenge, but never defining students by them-all within a program that incorporates challenging academics, championship sports teams, performing and visual arts, robotics, service learning, and more. McLean School is proud of its caring and collaborative community of highly trained and experienced educators.

This position reports directly to the Head of Upper School and the Coordinator of Learning Services, while also collaborating closely with McLean School counselors, college counselors, faculty, students, and parents. The ideal candidate possesses a minimum of a Bachelor's Degree in Education or a related field. We seek an organized, patient, creative, and flexible professional who has an appreciation for students with mild to moderate learning challenges and seeks to help foster self-confidence in our students as they learn to advocate and prepare for success in college and beyond.

Specific responsibilities include the following:

  • Develop and implement an overarching executive functioning and study skills curriculum to be taught through mini-lessons in Study Hall periods, in coordination with the Coordinator of Learning Services
  • Provide executive functioning, organizational, and study support with students in small groups and one-on-one
  • Liaise with College Board (SAT, AP) and ACT, as needed
  • Proctor in-house and standardized tests and quizzes which cannot be accommodated in classrooms
  • Present informational material at grade-level and advisory meetings
  • Support the Coordinator of Learning Services in the development of exam accommodation schedules during midterms and finals
  • Participate in divisional Student Support Team Meetings
  • Foster and maintain positive relationships with the students
  • Pursue knowledge of best practices for supporting students who have learning challenges
