Support from management

Well that's just laughable. The "principal" is a former aspiring law associate. If you need a way to circumvent or find a loophole in policy & mandates, I guess you can get support. If you're looking to grow your instructional practice, look elsewhere.

Teamwork

Teachers do rally behind and support each other in the absence of administrative support.

Freedom to work independently

Stay on admin good side and placate to their ego, and you'll be given lots of autonomy.

Overall compensation for your work

I am currently making 6K more for the same job at another charter school. I'd advise others to look elsewhere before committing.

Company Image

The PR at this school is all smoke and mirrors, but they do an amazing job at it!

Job Security

If you're "loyal" (their term, not mine) to leadership, you have job security even without any degrees, certifications, experience, motivation, or expertise. Just be loyal. Otherwise, all bets are off.

Inclusive / Diverse

Staff is become less diverse but there is lots of diversity among students and parents which is what makes the school so amazing and unique!

Suggestions for improvement

  • For a school to develop it's capacity for strong instructional practices (in order to increase SPS score and stay open), it would make sense to have a leader who brings strong instructional leadership to the table.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Culture and morale is extremely low - opinions are not welcome by administration and teachers feel unappreciated and even degraded and mocked. Administration had no interest in developing teachers this year and providing constructive feedback and coaching.

What I like about the company

My fellow educators are knowledgeable, professional, and always willing to help each other out. Our students are creative and interesting. Parents in the community try to be involved and care deeply about our school.

What I dislike about the company

Administration - a lawyer who has never taught a day in her life has no business being a head of school.
