The Maine School of Science and Mathematics (MSSM) seeks an Executive Director, (ED) to lead one of the nation’s few publicly established, residential, magnet schools. MSSM is a pioneering school of excellence, designed to serve talented high school students from across the state and, in a few cases, from across the country and abroad. Specializing in the sciences and mathematics, but also including rigorous courses in the humanities, MSSM is Maine’s first and only statewide high school. It is also the first school of its kind in the northeast and one of only about a dozen statewide public high schools of math and science in the nation. U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of high schools placed MSSM in the top sixty in the country for each of the past three years. MSSM seeks a leader capable of building and implementing an education model that extends beyond the existing School and 1) reaches all Maine students talented in mathematics and science and 2) is closely tied both to Maine public schools and the state’s University system. Inquiries, referrals, and resumes are encouraged by email and in confidence, with a cover letter from applicants sent to email@example.com.
