    Great family of teachers. Excepts all students doesn't matter what trouble they are. Takes new inexperienced teachers no questions asked. Takes out of field temporary certified teachers too.


    Drink the kool aid or you are out. We are imagine and if they think you are not then you are out.

    Advice to Management

    Pretty people are not what is important... Quality caring teachers who put students first is what counts.

    Average Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Imagine Schools (Cleveland, OH) in June 2015.


    Very pleasant interviewers, easy to talk to, willing to answer questions. They were interested in my past experience as well as way in which I used technology. Willing to be flexible with positions, seemed open to thinking outside the box. They described the school setting, urban -interested in that experience.

New solutions in education is not a stretch of the imagination for Imagine Schools. The company is one of the largest US operators of charter schools for students in kindergarten through 12th grade in the US. Imagine Schools educates more than 40,000 students at some 75 public charter schools in about a dozen states and Washington, DC. Imagine Schools was established in 2003 by CEO Dennis Bakke and his wife Eileen through a buyout of Chancellor Beacon Academies, the second-largest school management group in the US (behind Edison).
