    Pros

    Great multicultural environment, respectful and very friendly staff. The organization have the potential to make a real difference. DC BILINGUAL charter school does not apply to this review because they do actually have a separate salary scale. If you love to volunteering,community service and have limited financial responsibilities then this is a decent organization for you. Great place to practice Spanish. It is a great place to utilize problem solving skills, spend some time but definitely MOVE ON to something else and self reflect.

    Cons

    No guidelines, structure, poor leadership mainly due to the lack of organizational charts. The organization have a huge staff turnover rate and do not expect for someone else to get hire. Pray for interns! My understanding is that they tend to hire part-time employees that end up working full time. They don't believe in hourly wages (how convenient) but you submit time sheets rated hourly which seems a bit unethical to me. What is even more frustrating several divisions consist in only One individual, a director?! Don't let the titles fool you.

    Advice to Management

    Please! Hire quality, not quantity and review organizational charts. Too many individuals bossing around is a recipe for failure. Cost of living is extremely high in the DMV. Highly qualified and LOYAL employees deserve to be recognize and not overworked. Promotions bring more responsibilities rather than financial recognition.

    Pros

    Admin staff are nice and informal.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, The instructional coaches do not value the teachers opinions on how to teach their student. The instructional coaches are linear and are adaptive to new teaching styles which is affecting the student's learning capabilities. The principle is unresponsive if you send her emails. I resigned from the school unsatisfied with how the school was being run by the new principle of DC Bilingual public charter school

    Advice to Management

    Recommend change of instructional coaches.
