I have been working at Nobel Learning Communities

Pros

The kids are fun to work with. It's always great to help young children learn and grow as they develop new skills and knowledge.

Cons

Communication between staff and principal is awful. No one cares what the other person is doing, unless they are doing something of inconvenience for them. Staff is very negative about each other, students, and parents. People know what the minimum requirements are (not much) and skate by on doing hardly anything.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more competent, qualified teachers. Teachers should be able to speak clear English if that is the primary language being taught and focus more on communication between staff members since the same person is not with the children all day long.

    I have been working at Nobel Learning Communities

    Pros

    One pro is that I received very good professional development from ONE supervisor I worked under who is no longer there. 2nd, made good friends.

    Cons

    No opportunities for career advancement. Favoritism is commonplace by principals, which is really unprofessional and based on personality match, not on merit. Raises were frozen for 4 (four) years! Pay is equivalent to catholic school teacher pay -- but with horrible benefits. 3 days of sick pay per year. No personal days. Expected to work evenings for marketing/curriculum purposes (about 1 per month). Watch kids in morning AND recess. High insurance costs. No pension added to your salary. 401K that you pay into from your already very poor salary. Information sharing from principal to staff is very poor. (If you happen to be near the office, you may get the message.) CEO continues to get bonuses. Teachers work hard and are not paid to reflect credit for their work of trying to create a strong reputation for Nobel. After all , the CEO is NOT building the reputation! All of this leads to extremely low morale at school -- which leads to gossip and comraderie built on criticizing the school. It's emotional survival.

    Do not take a job here if you can. Or if you must, get out asap. Which is what most do and why turnover is extremely high with Nobel/Chesterbrook.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try making decisions with integrity and ethical behavior.

    I have been working at Nobel Learning Communities

    Pros

    To have love and care of the children is very rewarding, watching them grow, explore, try new things and learn every day.

    Cons

    Working with a diverse geroup of women who all think they have the answers and know just a tad bit more then the next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be around more to watch and see what is really going om and who is doing what is required of them
