Pros

Some good kids, nice schedule

Cons

Principals have no control of the school. The students run it and they know it. They would institute new rules at the beginning of the year, kids didn't follow them, so they would eliminate them mid-year, making the kids think it's a joke. The discipline there is unruly. There are fights every week of the year, and multiple fights every day around any holiday. For all the good kids, they were unable to learn because there was so many discipline issues that principals didn't deal with. It is a violent, and unruly place to be.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to "catch" your teachers doing poorly. You should be empowering them, and following through on discipline, especially with the worst offenders.

    Pros

    The majority of your coworkers are hardworking, depending on the school-a team environment, some of the specialist really do try to help the students instead of sitting in their office.

    Cons

    It depends on who you know in order to move out of the classroom, discipline is a joke at most of the schools.

    Advice to Management

    Train your management before placing them.
