    Pros

    "You spend your life how you spend your days." This boarding school follows the "triple-threat" model, expecting faculty to teach, coach, and supervise residence halls. The experience is rich and engaging for those who buy in. A great group of people work here. The leaders lead by example and have realistic expectations. There is little turnover. You get four months off per year.

    Cons

    "You spend your life how you spend your days." This boarding school follows the "triple-threat" model, expecting faculty to teach, coach, and supervise residence halls. You work many, many hours during eight months of the year. Because of the size (180) students, the leadership pyramid is very small, so there is little opportunity for advancement.

    Pros

    SKS is a special community. The entire program is designed to engaged boys, helping them grow as people and students. The faculty is incredibly committed and the coaches are some of the best in the country.

    Cons

    The compensation is on the low side and unless you are going to give 100% of yourself to your job - it would be a hard place to work. But if you do...the rewards are great.

    A demanding but rewarding job

    Pros

    Working at South Kent puts you almost constantly in meaningful contact with students. There is ample opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these young men.

    Cons

    Due to its small enrollment and faculty, South Kent requires a great deal of each employee: teaching, coaching, dorm supervision, advising, etc. When school is in session, the pace of work is very demanding.

    Pros

    beautiful campus and great colleagues. lots of good kids, and great hockey and basketball to watch! despite its problems, i instantly felt at home there.

    Cons

    great kids but very challenging work environment. the administration does not want to discipline kids that desperately need it! academics are not always the top priority.
