    A great place to work

    Human Resources (Current Employee) Renton, WA

    ProsThe opportunity for advancement is definitely there if you work hard and take risks to better yourself. The administrators are friendly and coworkers definitely care about the mission of the district

    ConsNot being a large "company", you have to really be a strong candidate to move up within. There's a lot of competition.

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

    I really liked working there as I have made some life long friends and strenghtened my teaching skills.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat team to work for. Made some life long friends. I can take a sick day and my coworkers will cover for me. We get off all the school district holidays and off in the summer months to be with our families. Great kids and families to work with.

    ConsTopped my salary as a preschool teacher, so the only raise is like 15 cents a hour per year.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
