Teachers matter. The most important factor in student achievement is the quality of the teacher in the classroom. Nothing matters as much as the person standing in front of those students – not where they come from, the resources they have access to, the building, the neighborhood. Nothing is as important as the teacher.


  • Driven Individuals. Altura Prep is supposed to be different. Our team is comprised of achievers who will work hard to make sure that all of our students have access to a stellar educational experience every day. We do what it takes to make this happen.
  • Joyful Team-Players.  We work together every day. We are a family and we’ll love you if you love coming to work every day. School should be fun. Bring your passion and your authentic self every day.
  • Life-long Learners. We expect ourselves to strive to be better every day. We model curiosity and agency every day.
