    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Woodward Academy (GA) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Students are the best aspect of the institution. The are diverse on many levels. I have learned a great deal from them through the years about religion, history, and culture.

    Cons

    The administrative hierarchy has grow to a point where input from parents, students and teachers in minimized.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge that the diverse community deserves to be asked to be involved in policy making and they should be listened to; their diversity brings a cornucopia of ideas that the homogeneous administration lacks.
