Suggestions for improvement

  • Teachers work many hours both at the school and at home planing lessons, grading papers, etc. They more than earn their pay. And as it is generally accepted that working at a private school comes at a lower pay scale, gratitude for the teachers' hard work could be shown in other ways. They could be offered free lunches in the cafeteria, given an extra personal day, allow to attend professional development events paid for by the school, given a free school t-shirt from time to time. These are all things that would cost very little, but would go a long way in showing appreciation.

What I like about the company

Working for the school has allowed me to provide my child with a much more robust elementary and middle school education than he would receive in public school. It has also allowed me to pursue teaching, which has been a longing I have had for a long time as well as a good fit with my degree in Instructional Technology. I enjoy most of the people I work with and I love having summers off. All in all, the positives balance out the negatives of it being a super small school very closely managed by the family that owns it.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of how the employees are treated from time to time. They are sometimes expected to do work that is outside of their contract. They are never offered professional development opportunities and they are rarely show any type of gratitude outside of an occassional ""good job"".
