    I have been working at The Solomon Schechter School of Westchester (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the best parts of working at SW is the chance to work with high caliber colleagues. The faculty is overwhelmingly composed of talented educators, who are masters of their content, completely committed to their students' learning, and all-around quality people.

    Cons

    It is a student-centered, enrollment-driven environment. Students and parents come first; the needs and priorities of faculty are usually secondary. This school is very much a business, and It often feels as if the pedagogical and learning decisions are made based on retention and the desire to please the client, regardless of what may be educationally prudent.

    Advice to Management

    People who do not spend time in classrooms should not be making curricular decisions or telling teachers how to improve their practice. Every senior leader should be teaching in some capacity. Practice what you preach.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at The Solomon Schechter School of Westchester.

    Interview

    Be careful with them. I was asked an question about my religion during a phone interview, and religious background and practice was mentioned several times during my on-site interview - very unprofessional and illegal; they should take a course on EOElaws. Additionally, I was asked about teaching an additional course which was outside the job description - twice - this echos what others have said about working here - they try to get you to do more than you are actually hired for. Overall, the process was a bit unprofessional and hurried - after being told to prepare a 40 minute lecture to present - I was only given about 20 minutes to present when onsite.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing of any value really stands out - perhaps, "give us three adjectives that your friends would use to a describe you" - sort of funny, I saw a question like that on a online dating site once.   Answer Question
