A curriculum trend setter. An institution that promotes the liberal arts in ways that no other institution in Pakistan does. The Principal is one of Lahore's only REAL educationists. Senior management and staff are extremely helpful, there is ALWAYS room for new ideas and projects - an unprecedented room for growth. Subjects such as Environmental Management, Thinking Skills, Government & Politics, Global Perspectives, and World Affairs are offered, while students are discouraged from taking up Accounting, Commerce and Business Studies at the O'level. The students engage in active,stimulating extracurricular activities and have done the school proud with Debates, Drama, Model UNs, Space Design Competitions and Community Service. Student Teacher Relationships are great. The employees have great respect for the Head of the Institution. Overall, it has been a pleasure working for this branch in particular.
The lower administration can at times be disorganized and traffic control is a problem. Recently, the school body has expanded way too much.

The working conditions are really good.You are treated like humans.IF u have any problem the school will try to help and that is the reason a lot of teachers are still working there.
No opportunities for growth or promotion when they want a headmistress they will hire her from some other school most of the time Beacon House.No appreciation.Salaries very low.I have been working for the last 11 years the pay scale has never been revised so the new teachers are getting as much as the teachers who are working here for a long time.I dont know why they have a complex here if you have studied abroad you are the in thing.Your pay will be really good and you can get away with any thing you want.
Advice to Management
Pay scale should be revised.

administration is helpful .multimedia and resources available.
teachers who studied abroard get preference than the ones who studied in pakistan.part time teachers get more advantage than full time teachers.
Advice to Management
pay scale should be revised.they should regard experience because it matters they prefer teachers who have studied abroard .it is no always true that if u have a lot of degrees u will be a good teacher.

LGS 55 Main is a great place to work for people who are responsible, creative, pleasant , enthusiastic, have drive and initiative. The environement is absolutely wonderful to work in. The students are vibrant and the atmosphere dynamic. Lessons are mainly student centered. The location is central. The workload is manageable. 24 to 26 periods a week. One can also get a part time job as a teacher if a slot is available.. mainly for the senior classes. Training workshops are paid for by the school.
The salaries are below market and there are limited opportinities for growth or promotion. One does not get any appreciation and has to motivate oneself. There is no health insurance or loans or other benefits. The fast pace of change can at times be unsettling .
