How is the work/life balance at Morristown-Beard School?

Pros

-Most of the students are wonderful as were many direct colleagues across departments -Curricular freedom -Guidance and support from other faculty -Mostly generous and supportive families

Cons

-Horrendous work life balance and proportionally low pay -Added duties without extra pay but without consequences for those who don’t follow through -Lack of diversity across staff and no true, competent support system of structure for POC or LGBTQ+ staff or students -Complete disconnect between administration and faculty—clear leadership has no understanding of classroom day-to-day realities or the mental and emotional well-being of their employees -Admin has a tendency of caving to parents and let board members and big donors kids’ infractions slide -This lack of support has persisted through two separate heads—and seems to actually be getting worse— clearly indicating it is a systemic, cultural issue and why I chose to leave this year.

Advice to Management

Realize that most of what MBS parents say keeps them coming back is the quality of teachers, the caliber of which will no doubt decline with the continued toxicity. Support your faculty, promote from within, and stand up to parents.
