- RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
Great curriculum, involved parents, excellent education for students, free/discounted tuition for employee's children, students are challenged and rise to the occasion. It's exciting to see how much students learn and grow!
Lots of unpaid working hours (typical for all teachers), salary low, lots expected of teachers (Science Fair, complicated musical programs twice a year, etc.), poor communication/support from management
Advice to Management
Believe in your teachers! Acknowledge how hard they work. Appreciate and support them in any way you can. Give bonuses for excellent, dedicated teachers. Improve communication.

However, if you are smart it is easy to see which answers they consider correct. They administered a Wonderlic Test, which is 50 math problems in 12 minutes and 30 seconds. Susan from HR comes in, reeking of cigarette smoke, and grills you on any answer that you got "wrong" on your political questionnaire. Then Hugh Gourgeon may come in and say something unintelligible in quasi English.
