Why work at NSNO?

Commitment to Mission

NSNO’s mission is to deliver on the promise of excellent public schools for every child in New Orleans. This belief that all of our city’s children deserve access to the best possible public education is what drives us individually and collectively in the work we do. As a result, each member of our team is committed to doing high-quality, impactful work on behalf of schools, and we hold ourselves and each other to high standards.

Though our mission remains constant, NSNO works entrepreneurially and nimbly to address the ever-changing educational landscape in New Orleans. A set of Beliefs guides our work and clearly communicates what we stand for. We also operate according to a set of Core Values that provide a common framework to guide our decisions and interactions, both internally and externally.

Commitment to People

At NSNO, we care deeply about our staff members. We focus on building a strong team that helps and respectfully challenges each other. We train and support our managers in providing individualized, targeted professional growth opportunities to their team members. Everyone receives on-going feedback – both positive and constructive – in the spirit of constant development.

We work incredibly hard on behalf of schools, students, and their families, but we also value individual staff member’s life priorities and work with each person to strike a balance that works for them. We offer competitive salary and benefit packages.

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We believe that having a diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences on our team is essential for us to achieve our mission. We strive to make NSNO a place where people feel like they can be their “true selves.”  We do this by deliberately creating and nurturing an organizational culture that values the perspectives each team member brings to the table, acting in accordance to our Core Values, and using shared beliefs and commitment to our mission to bridge differences. Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement acts as guide for ensuring we are living this in all aspects of our work.
