Employment Opportunities

The Math and Science Academy (MSA) is a 2009 NCLB Blue Ribbon School that offers an excellent work environment supported by an exceptional professional staff.  In addition, we offer a competitive salary and generous benefits package.

Under Minnesota Statute, a charter school must employ or contract with necessary teachers, as defined by section 122A.15, subdivision 1, who hold valid licenses to perform the particular service for which they are employed in the school. In addition, if a teacher employed by a district makes a written request for an extended leave of absence to teach at a charter school, the district must grant the leave. You also maintain your TRA benefits, since MSA is a public school.
