Working at the Ramallah Friends School is a meaningful and exciting experience. We are the leading PK-12 school in Palestine, offering a rigorous academic curriculum through the International Baccalaureate Organization. The school’s two campuses are located in the twin towns of Ramallah and El-Bireh, approximately ten miles north of Jerusalem. Ramallah is a developing, dynamic, and cosmopolitan city with a bustling city-center and a vibrant community. 

We seek to employ experienced and energetic faculty and staff to join our community and help educate the next generation of Palestinian leaders. Our team is constantly working to provide professional development opportunities and offers ongoing support to all members of our community.

Take a look at the short video linked here, the Ramallah Municipality produced in 2017 introducing the beautiful city of Ramallah, home to our Lower School - and adjacent to the city of El-Bireh where our Upper School Campus is situated.
