I have been working at Success Academy Charter Schools full-time for less than a year

Pros

I am so impressed with my colleagues -- a very smart, caring group of professionals fully committed to ensuring that our scholars have the best possible education. You can feel the energy and sense of mission when you walk through the door. The pace is fast and expectations are high which I appreciate. My hard work is recognized and I have a very supportive leadership team. The culture is one of continuous improvement so I have found people very open to feedback and working together to keep making things better.

Cons

Success Academy is a relatively new, fast-growing organization so it is important to be flexible as the organization continues to develop and change.

    *Vast opportunities to grow teaching practice with weekly professional development and supporting instructional staff
    Since teaching for the past 13 years in high needs urban areas, my past 3 years at SCN has been extremely rewarding because of the levels of excellence our scholars achieve in mastering math, reading, writing, and science above grade level

    Cons

    *teachers are rated by performance frequently throughout the school year and is very competitive
