I worked at Young Learners and Southwest Schools full-time (Less than a year)
Staff and teachers were awesome! Lots of support and help.
Kids are pretty good overall - not really any bad kids.
Extremely negative administration. If they like you, you're gold. If not .... move on.
Library is critically under stocked.
Playground is minimal - no place to really run for the kids.
Art and music are almost non-existent.
Administration has power issues.
Advice to Management
Structure is one thing but having all the doors open and expecting children in grades 5 and lower to be silent in the hall is unreasonable. There are real personnel issues with administration, too.
I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Young Learners and Southwest Schools (Houston, TX) in December 2015.
Application had been on file for over a year but a specific opening in my area came up mid-year.
Called school to contact principal.
Met with principal and assistant principal the week before Christmas - pretty hectic.
Got a tour of the school with the principal - seemed like I had the job already as she was pointing out policies and procedures.
