Company reviews
"Run, do not walk, away"
Current EmployeeTeacher
I wish that the company would better serve its students socially, emotionally, academically, and financially. I also wish that it would support its teachers.
Pros:
Cons:

"High turnover rates"
Current EmployeeParaprofessional
It’s a good place to work if you work with the right people, but due to lack of staffing you may do the work of two or three people each day. Once you advance to the third level you max out on pay with no raise or promotions. You’re only a 10 month employee which means you need to have a full time job during the summer. You get all other school holidays paid which includes fall/spring/winter breaks.
Pros:
Cons:

"Sucks "

Horrible company low wages and don’t care about employees. Will always choose students and parents over staff. Will take any student for numbers regardless of the child’s past
