    Great Company, Truly has students' best interest in all aspects.

    Director (Current Employee)

    ProsK12 has lots of areas for employees growth and professional development. Additionally, there are so many different divisions within K12, that the opportunities are countless.

    ConsK12 has experienced a significant number of changes in the past couple of years. They are not necessarily bad changes, but there have been many key executive changes. Change is never easy.

    Great place

    Site Director for Learning Center (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsI am a Site Director and have been here a year. They will create a new position if you convince them that it is worth while. If you have a positive attitude about k12, they will love you and listen to you.

    ConsThey are working on this by asking employees, but perhaps a bit more training with the tech stuff would be in order.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to listen to the people who work here who truly care about this school.
