Exceptional Teachers

St. Luke’s has one organizational goal that supersedes all others: Attract, retain and inspire exceptional teachers. This reflects clarity about the most important element of student success—teachers.

Exceptional teachers go Above & Beyond to connect with students, to craft compelling curriculum and create experiences that spark a lifelong love of learning. It is because we have advanced faculty that St. Luke's can offer Advanced Curriculum.

St. Luke’s alumni rank relationships with teachers as the most highly-valued aspect of their St. Luke’s education. Students, past and present, are hands down the best judges of why St. Luke’s teachers make a lasting impact…


What Makes a Teacher "Exceptional"?

Holly Conetta, Mother of Caitlyn ‘17 and Hunter ‘19

After Caitlyn’s first visit to St. Luke’s, she said  ‘the teachers and students are so present and engaged.’ That has been the defining element of her success. Teachers told Caitlyn her love of learning was inspiring to them—and that, in turn, further inspired her.”
 
Like all of us, teachers thrive when they feel valued and respected. Like their students, they crave the opportunity to explore and grow. By providing resources, opportunities, and encouragement to develop, we empower our faculty to bring their best selves to each moment of teaching.
