Positive Outlook

I worked at The Lab School of Washington as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

great kids to work with; lots of new, exciting, and innovative ways to integrate the arts into teaching; great facility with many resources

Cons

administration lacks organization; promised letters of recommendation, but never gave it to us and did not respond to emails or phone calls after leaving (in regards to volunteering or letters of recommendation)
if you are okay with disorganization with management/administration and enjoy working with kids, then this is a good place to look into. however, if you need more structure, you may want to check out another place.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at The Lab School of Washington (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The mission of the school, to educate students with learning differences is outstanding. Freedom to educate these students in the way that they need to be educated is a strength of the school.

    Cons

    There is little to no flexibility in how the employees can complete their work (aka, no work from home options for paperwork, reports, planning, although the infrastructure is there) which is a con in this day and age. The compensation is extremely low for both the location and the level of expertise required, but the budget is not shared with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Increase budgetary transparency, share the budge with employees. Increase compensation, especially with incoming employees, if you truly want to attract what you call "diversity."
