Location: Seeley Lake, Montana
Number of employees: 35
Digs: Typical school—except for the stashes of nordic skis and mountain bikes.
Culture: “We see education as something that happens in places not confined by four walls,” says superintendent Chris Stout. Before and after classes, Seeley teachers bike or cross-country ski on the groomed trails that surround the school and help run the Adventure Club, a program that takes kids biking, hiking, skiing, and fishing. Staff also participate in community-building projects like the Blackfoot Challenge, which promotes outdoor education in the Blackfoot River watershed.
Sweet Perk: Financial aid for everything from a master’s in science to ski-instructor certification.
Now Hiring: K–6 teacher
