The Soulsville Charter School is looking for Classroom Teachers. If you haven’t heard of The Soulsville Charter School, now’s the time. Here’s a little background…
Begun in 2005, The Soulsville Charter School (TSCS)’s mission is to prepare students for success in college and life in an academically rigorous, music-rich environment. Located in the inner-city neighborhood of Soulsville, USA, in Memphis, TN, TSCS is adjacent to the site of historic Stax Records, where the Stax Museum of American Soul Music is located. TSCS began with sixty students in sixth grade and has since grown to serve 580+ students in grades 6-12 with about a third of the students living in the Soulsville community. TSCS is a tuition-free, public charter school that is about changing kids’ life trajectories.
Also, a little about Stax: The Stax Museum of American Soul Music, located at the original site of Stax Records, pays tribute to all of the artists who recorded there with a rare and amazing collection of more than 2,000 interactive exhibits, films, artifacts, items of memorabilia, and galleries designed to keep Stax alive forever.
100% of the TSCS first two graduating classes (2012 & 2013) were accepted into college!
