I have been working at Saint Louis Public Schools full-time (More than 3 years)
Good leadership in individual schools make all the difference. Some of the schools are great because of this.
The district focuses on test scores and not enough time on mental health and behavior issues. Teachers are pushed to raise scores but are given few resources and little support to help make change.
Advice to Management
Your schools will never get better if the focus is only on academics.
I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Saint Louis Public Schools in July 2014.
The staff was professional. The office was clean and organized. I was greeted by the receptionist. The information that I was given was very useful. I was comfortable throughout the entire process.
