Great schools, great place to be a teacher.

High School Teacher (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

ProsOut of 59 districts with high schools in the 9-county Bay Area that I surveyed in 2007, FUSD ranked #2 in teacher salaries. For a teacher with my education and years of experience, I was paid $68 K/yr. They invest an awful lot of time and money in teacher development. Their data system, OARS, is fantastic. If compensation equals how much you value educators, then Fremont certainly shows it values teachers.

ConsSome of the site Principals and Vice Principals aren't as bright as the teachers they supervise.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't retaliate against teachers when they stand up to crazy parents. The classroom teacher is the professional and the parent is naturally biased. Otherwise, I would rate FUSD with an "A."

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
