    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Pinecrest Academy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff and students are wonderful. Very much a family environment with regards to the staff relations. The students are about the same as you will expect from other schools in the same demographic, and they are really good kids.

    Cons

    The administration is very unprofessional and difficult to work for. Very low level of moral and job security. They hire teachers that are under qualified for positions and promise them support, which they are not given. The administration, rather than fostering a team environment with parents and staff, very much creates a teacher vs. parent environment, which goes against their entire ideal. They fire teachers at whim with not one regard to how the students will be affected in these situations. Every year starts with many new teachers, and very few return for a second year.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff with humility and support. Stop starting each new year with new staff. Create and foster a good working environment to maintain and create longevity of staff. Train and manage rather than play political games that cause your staff to feel insecure and unappreciated.


  2. "Very positive place lacking direction from management."

    Pros

    Positive and uplifting faith based environment.

    Cons

    Management lacks consistent direction. The pay is very low for anyone not in management.

    Advice to Management

    Open your mind to non-Catholic students as thorough market research indicates. Without students from other faiths, the school cannot grow in a saturated Catholic market. As long as the faculty is solid in following the school's mission, the environment will remain Catholic.
