Company reviews
"What others say is true"
Former EmployeeTeacher
I taught at a virtual school in Michigan. Their cookie-cutter curriculum did not meet the needs of all students. I really felt sorry for the students. They deserve better. Clear lack of support from administrators and little to no mentorship. The technology platforms were either outdated, clunky, or in beta mode. Teachers are still overworked and underpaid, period, but this takes the cake. It was a living nightmare. Advice: Work in a real school district or leave the profession.

"Garbage "
Former EmployeeAdmission Representative
A toxic work environment with micromanaging and false expectations. Upper management is totally clues as to how to do their job. If you kiss butt then you will succeed here. If you aren’t a favorite don’t expect to get anywhere

"I learn something new every day"
Current EmployeeDirector of Human Resources
No two days are ever the same -- but the company's mission always is. Our goal is to support learners of all ages and our ultimate measure of success is for our students to be placed in jobs. The people are the best part of working at Stride. They are passionate about what we do and go above and beyond. Going above and beyond, though, sometimes means that your schedule isn't a typical work day. It can be long and challenging -- but very rewarding.

"Overworked overworked overworked"
Current EmployeeTechnical Support Representative
If your ready to pull 62.5hrs a week at the beginning of the school year then this is the job for you! You are micro managed and timed. They want the impossible possible.
