The mission of Gompers Preparatory Academy, in partnership with UCSD and our community, is to accelerate academic achievement for all students through a college preparatory culture and curriculum.
Tired of the same boring traditional methods of teaching? Is singing and dancing a part of your daily routine? Do you yearn for creative freedom? We are looking for creative individuals who will find new and innovative ways to bring content to life and motivate our students! This isn’t just an option, it’s a way of life at Gompers Preparatory Academy. If you are ready for the challenge, please apply. We want you!
Teaching at GPA is both an honor and a challenge. Given that the vast majority of our students are from two to four years below grade level in reading, writing, and math, the task of all teachers is to accelerate the curriculum in order to bring students to grade level. In order to achieve this end, we believe the adults who work with our students at GPA must be committed to the work, must connect to students, must be coachable, must be collaborative, must have strong character, and must demonstrate mastery of the content area. Becoming part of the GPA family is an opportunity to truly “make a difference for children and our society.”
