Reviews

Suggestions for improvement

  • Teachers need to feel appreciated and have input on district decisions.

What I like about the company

My school is amazing, it is moving forward and innovating in a huge way. If you are a teacher looking to embrace STEM, whole child centered learning and technology, Arthur Elementary is the way to go!! I can’t say the same for other schools in our district.

What I dislike about the company

Funding for supplies needs to change in a big way
