Professional Development

Our vision is to keep Graland at the forefront of education through ongoing professional development and training. We’ve found that teachers who are inspired to be on the cutting edge of education bring new ideas and methods into the classroom that transform learning.
The best teachers are the ones who never stop learning, and Graland faculty actively pursue opportunities to grow professionally, training in their subject matter and beyond. They seek out the most effective ways to engage each child. They collaborate across departments to gain fresh perspective and insight. They directly influence program growth. Their professional excellence is key to equipping students for success, and teachers are given the time and space to grow their skills.

Our approach ensures teachers stay stimulated, students stay engaged and our program stays relevant. Everyone wins.

The professional development program receives support from an endowment specifically earmarked for this purpose, securing the school’s long-term commitment to excellence in advanced teaching methods, technology, diversity and inclusivity, how children learn, and other topics.
