      Pros

      GREAT people! My colleagues were wonderful, knowledgeable and supportive. Dont have to manage lunch and recess as a teacher which is always a plus

      Cons

      No work/life balance. Emails go off until midnight and start back up again until 5 am, and there is an expectation to always respond. Lack of open communication between teachers and administrators. There was an us vs them mentality. Underlying threats are made when you communicate you do not want to return for the following school year.

      Pros

      DC Prep really knows what they are doing around instruction and social skills.

      Cons

      No work-life balance and the Friday PDs get old. They are not really big on promoting individuals of color of those having an actual degree in administration.
