It was a great experience, but the headmistress was not the best person to work for,.

I worked at Challenger School

Pros

My co-workers were great, the children are smart and they behaved very well. And the hourly wage was very good.

Cons

No benefits. They are very strict in attendance, so asking for too many days off is a no no.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To communicate more with employees. If there is a problem they must talk about it and find ways to to resolve the issue rather than resorting to a surprise termination.

    I worked at Challenger School

    Pros

    Kids at Challenger do score well on tests, They are generally ahead of their public school peers and are well behaved.

    Cons

    Challenger does not accept feedback fro parents or staff. It is their way or the highway. There is a large turnover of staff. Teachers are not required to be certified and many are there for tuition breaks for their kids. Curriculum is set in stone and leaves little room for creativity.There are no extra programs such as band, sports, foreign language etc. Also Challenger;s founder is very right wing. She supports the Tea Party and the John Birch Society. During the last election the campuses were plastered with campaign adds for her candidates and teachers are required to write an essay on their views on America as part of the hiring process. What you say impacts the decision on whether you will be hired.. The political views trickle down to the classroom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more flexibiillty, expand curriculum, require certification, listen to parents and teachers and get politics out of the school. Teach kids to think, not what to think.

    I have been working at Challenger School

    Pros

    Learning the different ways that the students are taught, the students seem to be alittle smarter than public students.

    Cons

    That not everyone is willing to follow all the rules and to do what is expected of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If an employee is not doing whay is expected of them I feel like they should find another job.
