    Pros

    Some very nice kids, good professional development opportunities if you know how to go after them, lots of freedom from supervision

    Cons

    Low staff and faculty morale, bitterness, layoff fears, weak administration, focus on money and admissions numbers and little on academics. Faculty expected to recruit, and when numbers are down, they are blamed. Academics are weak. Grade inflation and simplified curriculum to keep students and parents happy. Warm and fuzzy manner hides big problems.

    Advice to Management

    The Board should stop avoiding staff and faculty issues and seriously look beyond what the admin council tells them. Administrators are very weak, and some are an embarrassment. If the faculty/staff layoffs continue and you care even a little, you should start paying into unemployment.
