Pros

If you are interested in supporting the improvement of education in NYC, New Visions provides a host of opportunities to work with an extremely smart and dedicated set of colleagues to help schools. The organization works in data systems, teacher development, curriculum, college readiness, community engagement, and more. It is a supportive place to work and there are lots of chances to learn from all of the new initiatives. Great colleagues. Good benefits and compensation for a non-profit.

Cons

Not necessarily a con, but something to know: the organization is fast-paced and things are always evolving based on the policy environment, grant opportunities, changes in the DOE, etc. Be ready to be nimble and don't get too attached to any one thing!

    I have been working at New Visions for Public Schools as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at HUM III, with such a diverse student body has enabled me to enhance imperative teaching skills such as differentiating instruction and classroom management which has provided my students an opportunity to obtain passing scores on their regent exam.

    Cons

    Leadership does not acknowledge high student pass rates on regent as one of the indicators of successful teaching. They are very selective about who climbs the corporate ladder, despite evidence of successful teaching.

    Advice to Management

    Administration needs to be coached on how to raise up leaders within their current teacher body. People are provided with opportunities to lead and coach despite their student regent scores being below satisfactory.


  2. "Excellent, well run organization"

    Pros

    The organization is well managed and financially solvent. As well the work the organization does is innovative, impactful, and operating at scale within the highly complex NYC education landscape.

    Cons

    There are sometimes communication issues across different departments and sometimes there are projects are being done across the organization that actually work against each other because of these communication issues.

    Advice to Management

    Management is well aware of these issues and is working hard to overcome them.
