I worked at High Tech High
Pros – Great 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.
Cons – Staff 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 Management – Get 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.
