Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

Pros

As an employee of Explore Schools for over 5 years, I can honestly say I've never worked in a more supportive, dedicated work environment. I've loved expereincing how hard work & expectations... translate into significant growth in student achievement, and on a personal level, as a working mom, it's been wonderful to work for colleagues that value work/life balance.

Cons

You're held to high expectations, which can be a pro or a con... :)

Current Employee - Teacher

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

Pros

Mission - liberal arts education in a warm and caring environment - not no excuses like other charter school networks in the city. Adults treat children with respect, always. Leadership - school... based leadership is smart, knowledgeable, compassionate and hard working. Billie Quigley works hard to ensure all her leaders and teachers are constantly growing.

Cons

There is a lot of work to do but I don't see how it could be any other way!
