Teaching at success academies

First Grade Lead Teacher (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Success Academy Charter Schools full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAs a teacher at Success Academies, I am provided with the opportunity to teach at the highest level possible. We are given tons of supplies and resources to use in order to prepare and engage our students in lessons. I am always pushed to do better and as a result, my kids reach the highest of standards in every subject area. Principals are supportive of teachers and spend majority of their time giving feedback and meeting with grade teams in order to improve teacher practice. We are given tons of professional development throughout the year where we get the chance to ask questions and prepare for upcoming units. Teaching at Success is definitely hard work but with a little dedication comes great rewards. I would not choose any other school to be a part of!

ConsMust be dedicated to the overall mission of the school. Takes a lot of hard work and diligence to keep up with the demands.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Overworked and unreasonable expectations on staff, micromanaging

Lead Teacher (Former Employee)

I worked at Success Academy Charter Schools full-time for less than a year


Pros: 1. The kids 2. Great benefits, they contribute to your 401K 3. Free… Cons: 1. Micromanaging by leadership 2. No autonomy in your classroom, it's like they're making all their teachers into replicas of the one model they're looking… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

I was an Associate Teacher

Associate Teacher (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Success Academy Charter Schools full-time for less than a year


Pros: Not much to say...good benefits? Cons: Everything. Extremely high turnover due to many reasons, just a few of which are listed here. Hours are insane, management doesn't care about the employees,… Advice to Senior Management: You'll have a much happier staff if you recognize that employees are PEOPLE who want to have lives outside of work, don't want… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
