School principals manage all school operations, including daily activities. Duties vary according to institutions, but generally they supervise teachers and other staff, coordinate curricula, and provide a safe and productive learning environment for students. They also may set up additional supporting programs, such as counseling and special education.
Your school principal job description should detail educational and professional requirements. School principals must be excellent multi-taskers, as their duties include disciplining and counseling students, handling discipline problems, observing teachers, establishing and overseeing class schedules, and managing school activities and staff. Good candidates are detail-oriented problem-solvers.
Principals serve as the public face of the school, so they must be confident and have excellent written and verbal communication skills. Successful school principals are decisive, analytical leaders. They also are able to establish relationships with diverse groups.
Join our staff as the school principal and lead a team of highly dedicated teachers and support staff in providing the best educational experience for our students.

As our principal, you will represent our school at conferences and other events, networking with fellow administrators and instructors to remain abreast of relevant advances in education.
