    Pros

    Love the teachers, hard-working, caring and make your feel like family

    Cons

    Administration and Corporate do not see teachers as human, they see them as robots and do not pay staff and teachers appropriately. You're expected to do the job of 2 sometimes 4 people without compensation. Stay away not worth the mental breakdown they put you through.
