Education and Schools

Company Description
Over 20 years ago Fusion Academy started as a single, unique private school in the San Diego area. Fusion Education Group has replicated that school and now supports 60+ campuses. Each Fusion Academy is an accredited, one-to-one private school for grades 6 through 12. But we’re so much more than that. We’re a community of learning dedicated to creating a supportive environment where every student can flourish – emotionally, socially, and intellectually. Our teaching approach is unique and effective: one student and one teacher for the whole class period. This lets us present course material in a focused environment, at a pace, and in a style that suits each student’s individual interests, strengths, and challenges. Fusion is a unique place to work and teach. We believe that teaching and learning should be fun! So start a parade down the hall or wrap your classroom in tin foil! (If you can’t embrace that kind of wackiness, Fusion may not be for you…) “Fusionites” are creative and embrace change. We build relationships every moment, every day with students, their parents, and other Fusionites. Diversity is embraced and openness matters. We also believe that teaching is a calling, and not a job. Some of our teachers have teaching licenses but some do not and are content experts. We come from diverse backgrounds including special education, traditional teaching, tutoring, and life experience. We all have at least a bachelor’s degree, and many have master’s degrees or professional degrees.

Company reviews
"Better than a part-time retail job, underqualified employees"
Former EmployeeEnglish Teacher
People who have career positions will love it here because they tend to hire young, inexperienced people and send them off to a sort of cult-like retreat experience. It is here that some of these people become almost like cult-followers. This is no exaggeration. Meanwhile, the teachers are stressed and underpaid. Some of the "teachers" are just college graduates (if that) with NO educational background. This, unsurprisingly, leads to scenarios where young teachers engage in questionable behaviors with teens. Not that teachers ALSO haven't done that, but I feel this company (it is a for-profit company), is not focused on what is best for the students. No social worker on staff in spite of a population of students who need help - many have emotional and behavioral issues. It's nice for the students who are rich - they can skate by on Mommy and Daddy's money and barely work. It is awful for the teachers. No benefits, no vacation, no predictable hours, ten minutes of planning time per HOUR of class taught. Told to use Google to find lesson ideas. The least they could do is put together planned lessons for us since they only pay for the time spent teaching. I could tutor and make $60-80 an hour, have 5 students and make what I make working my butt off here, so no thanks.

"Flexibility demanded but not given"
Former EmployeeTeacher
My time at Fusion was like a tale of two jobs: dealing with students (mostly productive, enjoyable, and uplifting), and dealing with management (mostly disheartening, frustrating, and demoralizing). Teaching at Fusion offered me the chance to improve as a teacher, develop helpful curricula while working with other educators, and be a positive and beneficial person in many young students' lives. But teaching at Fusion also showed me the dangers of management that is detached from the reality of what is actually required to teach many of our students, poor pay and support, and a cliquish management culture which is frankly more petty and high-schoolish than the social groups that our students formed.
