    I have been working at Noble Network of Charter Schools full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a positive energy at the Noble Schools. I walk into work with a smile everyday. Teachers do not become complacent and always strive to get better. Administration is on your side and supports your decisions if they benefit the school. Students are held accountable for their actions. Clear, consistent consequences allow you to teach your whole lesson. Discipline is at the foundation of a Noble education.

    Cons

    These are not magnet schools. Our students come to us several years behind their affluent counterparts. You will have to work hard to overcome the achievement gap.

    Advice to Management

    Stop into classrooms periodically and teach a lesson or two on topics you are passionate about. Allow teachers to observe your feedback in action.
