I am filling out applications for 2 private schools both of which on the applications ask why do you want to work at ___ school? I've heard great things about both schools from teachers I work with that have kids at those schools, although I don't know much about the schools and frankly I'll apply to almost anywhere I see a job as I really need a full time job. Although this might be a general statement and not specific to their school, I thought about putting something in my answer about desiring to work at private schools which I feel are a nurturing environment and how at private schools you are able to really get to know your students and give them more individual attention. Any other thoughts? Should I search their website for info to put down of why I want to work at their school?
