    Tough but rewarding job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHigh Tech has a very interesting and different teaching philosophy, the project-based learning environment is fun to work in if you're part of the teaching staff. Getting to work with the students on cool projects that are educational is fun and rewarding. Also there's much freedom for the employees in terms of regulating their day-to-day schedules and work. The freedom mixed with the level of responsibility is a plus.

    ConsLack of organization in terms of the day to day agenda and a lack of discipline with students makes for a slightly chaotic environment. It's definitely not for everyone, especially if coming from a long history in a traditional school model.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great philosophy, smart students and parent engagement, behind closed doors-less-than professional staff.

    ProsGreat resources and the school's overall philosophy is incredible. They allow you the freedom as a teacher to use your judgement and be as creative as you want. Great community and level of engagement from both students and parents. You will undoubtedly be impressed with the work students accomplish here.

    ConsStaff mentality very much resembles that of the students they teach: very cliquey, a lot of politics. Large disconnect between administration and staff

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet buy-in from your teachers. Try to unite staff as a whole in a better way, instead of creating seperate ecosystems of staff members within the school.
