    Pros

    teachers treated well
    good team leaders
    some mentoring available
    friendly collegial work environment
    some interdisciplinary opportunities
    good quality students, smart and well behaved (for the most part)

    Cons

    merger with CHA very contentious and political
    The new head of upper school is difficult to work with
    very little oversight...on your own in the classroom

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together in private; the frequent mied messages from different managers are confusing and hard to deal with.

    Pros

    Working at SCH is never dull ~ changes happen constantly and if you are innovative and energetic it is a terrific place to come to work every day. The people who work there are wonderful colleagues.

    Cons

    The constant changes make life stressful. "Traditional" teachers would probably be very unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Implement full tuition remission to help recruit top candidates to teach at SCH, to make faculty commit to the school long term and to give the school more middle class students.
