    Toxic work environment. Bad for both students and teachers

    Pros

    The students are so hardworking. I’ve also heard some good things about the argosy’s high school and the quality attention students get there. Test scores don’t seem to indicate that, but the high school staff seem a lot more reasonable than the middle school.

    Cons

    There is an air of hostility, the most rapid employee turnover I have ever seen, and an unbelievable amount of micromanaging and communication expected at home. I would get emails, calls, and texts from leadership and coworkers about new tasks to do at such unreasonable times, from as late as 2 in the morning to as early as 4 in the morning. I was working all the time and getting very little sleep. It was an extremely toxic work environment and tasks were so often repetitive and meaningless. No room for creativity and things made very little sense. Culture of “work harder, not smarter”. I know many other teachers who have also quit and every single one of them is so grateful they did. If you are a parent deciding whether to send your kids here or the public school, absolutely choose the public school. Argosy is so desperate to hire that they hire teachers who have been fired for misconduct and your children won’t get the opportunities here for activities, clubs, sports, or friendship, that they will get at the public school.

    Pros

    So great to be part of a collaborative, supportive staff. Even during COVID19, all decisions have been made with the best interest of keeping the community safe.

    Cons

    Lots of shared spaces, but this should be much better once the high school extension is opened in February of 2021.
