    Pros

    Good pay, superb technology and resources for students and teachers!

    Cons

    Little support, biased evaluation systems, if you're liked all will be well and if not, teacher spot and evaluation will never work for you! No matter if students did well over 70% of state/district tests, treatment was horrifying! Best is to leave and do not turn back, school administration and even HR will not support you, that explains teacher high turnover!
