    A School District that truly respects you as a teaching professional

    Elementary School Teacher (Former Employee) Palo Alto, CA

    ProsHigh salary and compensation that recognizes continuing education, access to quality educational supplies, art, music and PE programs and lower classroom sizes.

    ConsThe cons associated with working with the public school system. While our school wasn't as focused on testing as in other districts, the standards are still present and taught. However, as a teacher you are given much more ability to be creative in your curriculum development. Some teachers complain about pushy parents, other teachers appreciate the parent-involvement.

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

    ProsOverall PAUSD is a fair district with a strong commitment to teachers, students and staff. There is a great amount of solidarity among colleagues.

    ConsPart time staff is not given full benefits which is petty and short sighted.
