    I have been working at Westborough Schools

    Pros

    Great kids! Supportive parents and great supportive management.

    Cons

    Pay. You will never be rich.. Very poor MA Teacher's Retirement. I think that if most teacher's understood finance, they would realize what giving up 11% of your gross salary over years really means. Plus you lose all or most of your Social Security Benefits that you have alrady vested.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job!

    Tried and true office protocols
    Good health care benefits
    good retirement benefits
    nice work environment
    technology is a strong focus

    Cons

    All about testing
    Not enough fun for students
    too much red tape
    special education suffers becuase of lack of qualified teachers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please let students have some fun every once and awhile. Testing should not be the central focus of the school district
