    Pros

    Very good food as well as support for family

    Cons

    Some of the employees are just there to make a few bucks i wish they were more involved and tuned towards the schools goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some of the middle managers seem to have complete control and it should be more centralized i think

    Pros

    The students are wonderful. They love school and it shows. There are very few classroom management issues. Excellent after school program with just about any activity or sport that a child could want to participate in. Teachers are great to work with. There is an excellent budget and plentiful resources. Professional development is required and you are encouraged to choose your own PD so teachers have the opportunity to attend at least one conference a year. Parents are very involved. Great school spirit! Wonderful access to technology.

    Cons

    Harker is not a very progressive school. It takes time a lot of time to integrate change. There needs to be a better work/life balance for teachers and students.
