    Pros

    The teachers are nice and caring. The students are wonderful. Very fulfilling. They have opportunities to make a bit more by participating in after school committees.

    Cons

    It's very rigid. You get yelled at by the secretary if you an accidentally miss a lunch duty, even the very first time. You need to directly call the Principal's cell if you're going to be sick even though he doesn't deal with it - it's for accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the teachers with more respect and less like children. It feels a bit too policed.


  2. Limited support

    Pros

    Children of older grades are great.

    Cons

    Very limited support for new teachers, not keeping the new teacher informed about what is going on in the school. Rather than a teacher, constantly feeling like a waitress, trying to satisfy the need of students and parents. Can't have one's own standard.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more support for new faculty. This is a school, not service industry.


  3. Good intentions and caring, but disorganized and inconsistent.

    Pros

    Great students! The faculty and staff are deeply caring. They work very hard for students and families. The teachers put in a great deal of extra hours for their students.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability on the administrative side and very inconsistent when it comes to applying rules they create.They just need to work on follow through and holding people accountable for their responsibilities. They can also improve by making sure faculty and staff are properly trained to report student information. They don't apply the message they give to kids to their faculty and staff, i.e. equity.

    Advice to Management

    It would help to give faculty and staff the same consideration given to students and families. Take time to make sure everyone understands the rules and hold people accountable when they don't meet their responsibilities or deadlines instead of waiting until it is a big problem or safety issue. Be consistent.
