    Pros

    Great teachers, lovely campus, strong after school program

    Cons

    Administration is centered on its own monetary desires and does not communicate well with faculty. Most faculty members try to keep their heads low and fly below the radar because of the fear of being fired. It is not a happy or healthy environment for teachers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your ways. Head Royce has over 100 years of excellence behind it and currently that is being tossed aside. The teachers are at an all time low emotionally. Most want to quit but can't because of the economy. The administration is being run like a patriarchy with everyone else running scared. This institution and those who have worked tirelessly for years deserve so much more. Stand down.

    Pros

    Head-Royce School is situated on a beautiful campus in the hills of Oakland. The school has ample resources and is full of bright, talented kids. The presence of experience faculty is also a big plus.

    Cons

    Can't really think of much, other than the fact that the surrounding Oakland neighborhood is a little sketchy. Although the benefits were great, the compensation was a little low for living in California...
