    I have been working at Harmony Public Schools full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work for the Harmony School of Nature us that there are good team members and autonomy

    Cons

    Some of the downsides to work for the Harmony School of Nature is that if you are competent you will continually be asked to do more work than less competent or less reliable co-workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust effective people and do not ask more of them than in-effective people.

    I worked at Harmony Public Schools

    Pros

    The majority of the staff are incredibly dedicated and genuinely love what they do. They work tirelessly and commit their lives to educating the students that enter their classrooms.

    Cons

    The management lacks consideration for genuine education and focuses entirely on standardized tests and evaluations that showcase school accomplishments versus individual care of students. The teachers are not well compensated for their work and the classrooms often do not have enough supplies for students.

    They give you a lot of freedom as it is a charter school, but they will really pile on the work.

    I worked at Harmony Public Schools full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Freedom in how to teach, Lots of trainings, and good support for normal academics.

    Cons

    lower pay, making everyone do the job of a teacher and a half or more. A heavy expectation that you should just "Do it" without consideration for if they can/have time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please talk to your employees. They aren't just worried about being compensated. They have families and lives which they are giving up to work with you. But there is little respect for that which drives them off.

    Pros

    They stay out of your business. They were very flexible with my schedule and paid overtime hours.

    Cons

    All ideas were shot down quickly. They had issues they wanted fixed, but were not willing to listen or take the steps needed to fix them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people you hire.
