Great organization

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Oakland, CA

ProsAspire has a great mission and staff. The systems, infrastructure, and culture around making data-driven decisions at all levels of the organization are years ahead of most other school districts. The commitment to serve students by building strong teachers is powerful. Overall, the organization runs very efficiently.

ConsThe organization has very high expectations which can require large time input. The focus on test scores is understandable given they are a charter, but is more narrowly focused on math and english than I would like.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
