Pros

Good health benifits and 401(k) contribution matching.

poor salaries, no salary structure, opaque decision-making process on raises

Advice to ManagementAdvice

treat teachers more like public school teachers when it comes to work rules and salaries.

    I have been working at Leona Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    We have a curriculum for most subjects.

    Cons

    Regular teachers are expected to teach special ed students. There is no sped teacher and no assistance. School leader has no idea what they are doing...why no Master's in Leadership?? Campus not secure...no policies in place. No supplies unless you purchase your own. Pay is $5k less than district and same BS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for 360 reviews of your school leaders so you see what is going wrong...require experience and a Masters degree for school leaders. Why are schools doing inclusion? You can still have sped pull-outs and have them feel a part of the school.

    Pros

    If you really want to make a difference in the trenches of urban education this is the place to be. I love working here and have had every opportunity to advance professionally here. This company values innovation, creativity, hard work and real effort. Not everyone wants to work hard enough to be here and that's ok.

    Cons

    Education is a tough business in general right now. the traditional system is failing and funding is scarce. But Leona makes the best of it and is an inspiring place to be.
