Open Quote Amazing school for my students Close Quote


by a teacher
Sunday, September 7, 2014

Open Quote I worked at this school and I must say, I was horrified by what I saw here. Not only were teachers shuffled around yearly (though many moved quarterly) from subject to subject with little or no notice, the behavior management model borders on emotionally abusive. Students have little to no voice at this school. God forbid you have special needs: special education teachers are given caseloads of over 30 students and zero support at the beginning of the year. Compliance has been a huge issue at this school and caused the special education staff to turnover more than any other group (5 special ed staff resigned, leaving 2 teachers for most of the year). This means that students are underserved, especially when you consider the level of need many of these students have. Students are losing academic ground at this school. Students who started the year a grade level behind end two years behind: this is due to the fact that teachers aren't usually teaching in the subject they're best educated in, are given little to no support, and have to navigate quarterly changes to the daily schedule, curriculum, and content areas with little to no warning. As for the "enrichment" the school boasts, it is not enrichment. I witnessed many teachers trying to create good content (music teachers who tried to teach music with no instruments, no practice space, etc, to cheerleading coaches who spent hours planning cheers), but the program isn't structured at all. This meant that many days students spent their "enrichment" time watching movies or running around outside. Because teachers had no time to plan for their "enrichment" blocks, students suffered. They need to triple their teaching staff, change their controlling behavior management system, actually offer professional development to teachers, and invest in more substantive educational tools and practice to benefit their students rather than spending money on "report cards for teachers" (teachers get massive $ bonuses based on their "report card"). As a teacher, I didn't join this work expecting to make a ton of money: I did it because I love children and want to help them be the best people they can be. They throw money at their teachers, hoping to financially entice them to stay rather than offering a positive work environment, professional support, and a truly kid-focused environment.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
