    Former Employee, more than 5 years

    Lack of leadership leaves parents running the show

    2 Jul 2022 - Teacher

    Business Outlook

    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.
