Featured Review

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at DC Public Schools full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Impact system, many resources, lots of opportunity

Cons

Big system with a lot of red tape, slow with rollouts and focus of work

Current Employee - Assistant Principal

I have been working at Achievement Prep full-time for less than a year

Pros

Achievement Prep has intentionally brought in a skilled, mission-aligned, and passionate team of people while downsizing to ensure scholars' needs are met. Our team is hard-working, mature,... experienced, and well-positioned to lead our school through past challenges to fulfill our mission and get back to and exceed where we were when we first opened. We have examined and addressed our challenges head-on and have a plan to address each obstacle.

Cons

I've been a part of many organizations that work long hours, and while hours are long here, the team is positive, the goals are achievable and the work is much more energizing than draining!
