    Pros

    They are very family oriented. There is a real care for the students and their staff. Teamwork and collaboration is strongly encouraged.

    Cons

    North Carolina teacher salaries are lower than nearby states. Because Gates County is right over the NC/VA line, some choose to teach in Virginia for higher pay.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push for higher salaries for teachers, and vote/elect those who represent the same thing.
