Be Wary.

3.17

Company Culture

Employees are wary of administration; definite problem with trust in higher levels of administration.

Support from management

Administration had overriding mandates from Central administration that made working there problematic.

Teamwork

Many good people working there whose focus was the students.

Freedom to work independently

Too many mandates from central administration; attempts to micromanage.

Internal Communication

Definite lack of communication from administration.

Gender Equality

Very centered on the idea of equality in the workplace.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Definite problems for older employees as they tend to be more expensive to hire.

Career Development

Ample opportunity to advance and develop leadership skills.

Overall compensation for your work

Good benefits and compensation in comparison to other districts. Catch is when you seek to get a pay raise.

Office / Work Environment

Good students but there are some definite discipline problems.

Environmental Friendliness

Faculty and staff work to help the community.

Work-Life Balance

Administration asks for a lot of extra work in class prep.

Company Image

Bad reputation in terms of area in which school is placed.

Job Security

School administration is setup to cycle teachers out within 3-5 years.

Handicapped Accessibility

Brand new school and is ADA-compliant.

Workplace Safety

Brand new school.

Challenging Work

Students have need of mentoring and caring professionals; you are involved in the job.

Inclusive / Diverse

They do try to balance the staff and make everyone aware of social inclusion.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Definite need to revamp process for lesson plan approval as well as communication issues.

What I like about the company

Brand new school and excellent resources to be used in the classroom. Definitely setup as a "21st Century classroom".

What I dislike about the company

Too many demands on paperwork and lesson plans. I had to submit lesson plans 2-3 per week for one week's lesson plan.
