    They care more about their public relations than they care for the needs of the students!

    Special Ed Teacher (Former Employee) Langhorne, PA

    Pros"Some tuition reimbursement , in-service tracings offered, direct deposits, some incentive bonuses, health benefits w minimal cost, 403b offered at employees expense, workers compensation, life insurance while working, long-term disability, short-term disability ( employee has to pay), great students,great teachers/support, some excellent support staff"

    Cons"Everything has an underlying glitch, minimal support from supervisors, some abusive support staff directed and student directed, cover-ups regarding violations including death of students, lack of communication between teachers and therapists, favoritism toward some teachers and slanderous statements towards targeted teachers, power struggles, physically violent students, verbally inappropriate use of language, no more pension plan, tons of paperwork, performing testing even if not qualified to administer them, no teacher set-up time, Most Restrictive Environment"

    Advice to Senior Management"Please get your priorities in order, this Institution has so much potential if only the students had actual appropriate therapies including intensive swimming instruction, year-round intensive horseback riding therapy, Implementation of Sensory Integration Therapy, providing sidewalks for the protection and allowing students to safely explore the beautiful campus, providing more paid on-campus and off-campus vocational training, and accurate transition planning"
